      Serv-U 15.1.7 HotFix 3
      is now available for download on the customer portal for customers under active maintenance.

       

      This SolarWinds hotfix addresses the following security and functionality issues:

      • Performance improvements in Serv-U Management Console. Now it's independent of the number of simultaneously running sessions.
      • Log enhancements allowing administrators better maintenance of Serv-U.
      • Updates for security and stability.

       

      Requirements

      This fix updates Serv-U and several resource files.

      Within the Serv-U folder there is a folder for each supported platform. Please use the files for your platform when updating Serv-U. The folder contains files in the appropriate directory structure (if necessary) to upgrade your installation.

      This fix requires Serv-U version 15.1.7.209

      This fix contains 8 files for Windows and 4 files for Linux:

       

      Windows:

      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\Serv-U.exe
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\Serv-U-Tray.exe
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\Serv-U.dll
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\Serv-U-RES.dll
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\RhinoNET.dll
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\RhinoRES.dll
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\Strings\Serv-U.str
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>\Strings\Serv-U-Strings.h

       

      Linux:

      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>/Serv-U
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>/Serv-U-Tray
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>/Strings/Serv-U.str
      • <Serv-U-InstallDir>/Strings/Serv-U-Strings.h

       

      Install the HotFix.

      1. Shut down all running Serv-U processes.

           a. Right-click the tray icon, and select Stop Serv-U.
           b. Right-click the tray icon, and select Exit Tray.

       

      2. Navigate to the Serv-U installation directory:

       

         For Windows, the default installation directory is:

              C:\Program Files\RhinoSoft\Serv-U

          or:

              C:\Program Files\RhinoSoft.com\Serv-U


         For Linux, the default installation directory is:

              /usr/local/Serv-U

       

      3. Back up the following files from the installation directory to a separate location:

       

         Windows:

      • Serv-U.exe
      • Serv-U-Tray.exe
      • Serv-U.dll
      • Serv-U-RES.dll
      • RhinoNET.dll
      • RhinoRES.dll
      • Strings\Serv-U.str

      Linux:

      • Serv-U
      • Serv-U-Tray
      • Strings/Serv-U.str
      • Strings/Serv-U-Strings.h

       

      4. Extract the hot fix .zip file to a temporary location.

      5. Open the folder in the extracted hot fix for the platform Serv-U is installed on. For example, open the Windows 64-bit folder if Serv-U is installed on a 64-bit version of Windows.

      6. On Linux, modify the permissions of the files by executing the following command:

       

            chmod u+xs Serv-U

            chmod u+x Serv-U-Tray

       

      7. Copy the hotfix contents to the Serv-U installation directory, overwriting the existing files.
