I have OME installed and successfully discovered and inventoried my 11G servers. I downloaded the update catelog and have identified some servers that our non-compliant. When I run the update task it goes to 100% complete in less than 2 seconds and no update occurs.....any ideas?
Can you confirm that version of OME you are running?
- Check the content @ C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\SysMgt\Essentials\SystemUpdate\Cabinets
- Did the cabinet folders get created and the time stamp for them should be current also they have a content in them
- Also re-start the task manager service DSM Essentials Task Manager
Thank You for taking the time to respond Rob. Here are the answers:
Version: OpenManage Essentials 188.8.131.523
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\SysMgt\Essentials\SystemUpdate\Cabinets is empty. There are no files or subfolders.
The DSM Essentials Task Manager has been restarted.
Looks like the problem might be the fact that I don't have any content in the Cabinets folder.....any idea how to resolve?
ok, so you need to make sure you have access to the internet from that machine. If the content in the cabinet is empty then the packs did not get downloaded so you probably do not have access to the ftp.dell.com from that machine.
You can try typing ftp.dell.com in the browser.
Also, there are proxy settings under OME prefs you may need to set. Review the text/tooltips in the proxy settings for more info on this.
Hope this helps.
Was able to successfully go to ftp.dell.com from a browswer within the OME server. Any way to populate the Cabs without using the OME update catalog wizard?
Wanted to post the solution. Giving full control NTFS permissions to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\SysMgt\Essentials\SystemUpdate folder has corrected the problem. The job runs successfully now.
