So this morning I was upgrading our Orion environment with the latest versions of IPAM and SAM and latest hotfixes. The primary poller installer (online) seems to have worked as expected, and I see SRM 6.5 HF1 as an installed update:
However after using the additional poller installer (online), I don't see this specific update applied to the additional pollers. I also don't see this HF in my support portal to install manually. The other HFs seem to have been equally applied to primary and additional pollers.
Version 0.0.0.1 indicates that this is old Scalability Engine Installer. New unified installer is available and it would be marked as version 18.104.22.1684.
The best you could do is to download online installer for SRM from Customer Portal (check that this is 1.3 version, but it should be available by now), then run it on Main Server to check if everything is up to date. After that - use the same installer on the APE.
I hope that would solve your issue!
Thanks for the clarification, but I would rather not run the updater again for all modules. Can you please add the SRM 6.5 HF1 download to my Customer support portal?
It's important that your additional polling engine is in sync with the latest not just for SRM but for all released hotfixes. Please run the hotfix bundle that is provided in customer portal on your main poller and run the new 1.3.484 versioned installer (the one that Kacper listed) on any additional polling engines. This will ensure that the changes are limited to hotfixes.
This is to ensure compatibility of your modules, and to maintain the stability of your platform installation.
So when attempting to run the Solarwinds-Orion-HotFix-2017.3-OfflineInstaller package - with version number 22.214.171.1244, on our additional pollers, I first get this message:
When I choose to "SKIP" - given this is the "offline" package, I then get the error message one would get when the online package can't access the SW download url:
For what it's worth I get similar. I download the latest EXE from the customer portal and when I run it I get the auto-update page and it just sits there and does nothing. When I Skip it was then telling me there was nothing to install (which was a lie). In the end I used 7-Zip to open the offline installer EXE and copy out the contents in to %programdata%\solarwinds\installers and then ran the offline installer again and it seemed to work.
This new installer has been terrible. I'd almost rather it was the bad old days of downloading zips, renaming files and copying stuff over manually...
I extracted SRM 6.5 HF1 manually from the installer package and applied it successfully back on the 18th:
Then the only problem that was left was IPAM 4.6 HF2 - I covered the issues I encountered with that in the IPAM 4.6 is broken thread:
Basically looks like the offline packages still need work in areas, it's out of date for the Active Diagnostics package - I worked around it by uninstalling that module from my primary and additionals. To get IPAM 4.6 HF2 properly applied I had to do the following:
1. Uninstall Active Diagnostics
2. Uninstall IPAM 4.6 HF1 and HF2
3. Uninstall IPAM - cancel the Config Wizard that kicks off after this step.
4. Run IPAM offline installer, let it install IPAM 4.6 HF2
5. Run Config Wizards.
