FAST ESP : Patch application related RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Whenever we apply a patch to Fast ESP, the applied patch notification can be seen on Admin GUI under "System overview" tab.

    My Question is:

    1- Is it possible that a patch is applied and does not appear under System overview tab?

    2 - Is their any other way to verify a perticular patch been applied?

    Thanks,

    Nitin

  • Hi Nitin,

    yes, both is possible.

    ad 1) Yes, it is definitely possible that a patch has been applied and does not show up with its release notes on the system overview tab. The releasenotes shown at system overview are coming from %FASTSEARCH%\etc\hotfixes from the node where the adminserver is running on.  

    ad 2) The file %FASTSEARCH%\var\installer\patch-history.xml on each node within the system contains the entire patch and service pack history.

    Please note, that you have to ensure to patch all nodes within a cluster and that system overview only provides an overview on the node where the adminserver is running on.

    Hope this answers your question,

    regards
