Chapter 17. Patching a Fabric


This section explains how to apply patches to a fabric. In a fabric, patches are applied to individual containers, so you can choose whether you want to apply a given patch to just some or all containers in a fabric.

Patching a fabric

To patch a fabric container (or containers) from the Management Console, perform the following steps:
  1. In the dropdown box below the Versions button, select the version that you are going to apply the patch to. Now click the box icon on the left of the + icon, on the Versions button:
  2. The Applying patch to version 1.1... page appears:
    Fill in the fields on this page as follows:
    1. Use the Add button to add one or more patch files.
    2. (Optional) Enter a name for the new version (to which the patch will be applied).
      The version name must be a pure numeric string, such as 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, or 2.2. You cannot incorporate alphabetic characters in the version name (such as 1.0.patch).
    3. Enter the administrator credentials, User Name and Password.
    4. Click Apply.
  3. Apply the patched version to a container (or containers) from the Manage page.
    Perform the following steps:
    1. Select the container(s) to migrate, by clicking on the circle next to the container name.
    2. Use the dropdown list to select the patched version that you want to migrate to.
    3. Click the green arrowhead on the Versions button to complete the migration.
  4. If the migration is successful, you should see the changed version of the container on the Manage page. For example, in the preceding example, the root / 1.0 container would change to root / 1.2.
