    Some Questions on CF10 > Server Update > Updates

    carl type3 Community Member

      The "CF10 feature PDF" says:

       

      Server update... The updates can include hot fixes and security hot fixes for ColdFusion 10.

       

      Will traditional "CF updaters" be a separate process apart from hotfix, cumulative hotfix and security update eg  ColdFusion 9 Update 1 (9.0.1)?

       

      Will the update type be specific and say-

       

      Update Type: cumulative or hotfix or security?

       

       

      Previously patch order had a bearing on the wellbeing of CF. For instance one would elect to install say updater1 followed by cumulative hotfix  then subsequent security patch eg CF9.0.1, CHF1, APSBxx-xx. Will CF10 updater manage patch order or prerequisites not allowing incorrect update order?

       

      Thanks, Carl.

          The CF10 update using HotFix hf-zeus-00001 did not apply for me. How have others gone with applying HotFix hf-zeus-00001 update?


          Server Update > Updates says:

            
          UpdatesInstalled

          Error Occurred while reading update information - An error occured while Parsing an XML document.

           

          Debugging & Logging > Log Files > update.log  says:

          Tried to apply HotFix hf-zeus-00001 update manually:

          CMD

          C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\hf-updates>

          C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\hf-updates>echo %JAVA_HOME%

          C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;etc;C:\ColdFusion10\jre\bin

          C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\hf-updates>java -jar hotfix_0001.jar

          Prompts for Where is ColdFusion Zeus located

          Offering

          C:\ColdFusionZeus

           

          Change that detail to correctly match setup

          C:\ColdFusion10

          The install seems to complete offering - Install Complete.


          Tho upon logging in to CF Server Update > Updates  does not show update installed.

          Things noticed
          -ColdFusion 10 Application Server stops
          -ColdFusion 10 Application Server reports as being started
          -CFadmin keeps responding:
          Service Temporary Unavailable!
          The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

          -


          Action taken
          -Wait 15 minutes restart ColdFusion 10 Application Server
          -Read thru Adobe_ColdFusion_Zeus_HotFix_1_Install_date_time.log seems to indicate success

           

          Thanks again, Carl.

              Hi Rupesh,

               

              Thought I would try CF10 Server Manager AIR app to apply HotFix however option is greyed out:

                Hi Carl,

                Form ColdFusion 10 onwards, all updates will be cumulative. This means that all fixes of previously relased hotfix be included in any new hotfix which comes later.

                 

                Also the previous process of deploying jar files in through Server Manager won't be relevant with ColdFusion 10 as now hotfix jar will be full installer(unlike previous hotfixes which required copying them to lib/updates folder in CF server).

                 

                Regarding the error with current hotfix, we are in prcess of updating new test hotfix which will be compatible with the beta release. If you have installed he current one, you can unistall it with uninstaller placed under <CF-HOME>/cfusion/hf-updates/<hotfix name> folder or through Admin (under Installed updates tab on updates page).

                 

                thanks,

                  Nice

                   

                  >through Server Manager won't be relevant
                  OK

                   

                  >process of updating new test hotfix which will be compatible
                  Let me know when it is posted so I can try it.

                   

                  Thanks for prompt response, Carl.

                    Hi Sandeep,

                     

                    >through Server Manager won't be relevant

                     

                    The online help indicates CF10 Server Manager can be used to apply updates?

                     

                    http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusion/10.0/Admin/WSfd7453be0f56bba4-2a6b48f122a6582c7f-7f f6.html

                    Heading  "Apply hot fix"
                    "You can update multiple ColdFusion Server instances, once they are registered with Server Manager." 

                     

                    Regards, Carl.

                      Hi Carl,

                      We have updated test hotfix compatible with ColdFusion 10 Beta.

                      If you have installed the previously available hotfix, make sure you uninstall it, else latest one be shown as available one for download in CF Admin.

                        Thanks Carl for pointing this out.

                        We will update Server manager docs to reflect the new change.

                            Hi Sandeep,

                             

                            Further when I ran remove update from:
                            Server Update > Updates > UpdatesInstalled 

                             

                            The dialog prompted that CF10 would restart. It stopped however did not start. Run SERVICES.MSC and started "ColdFusion 10 Application Server".
                            Should the dialog be changed or was there a problem and you would expect CF10 to start without intervention after update removal?

                              Currently there is issue with update uninstaller which does not restart CF server post uninstall.

                              We are aware of the bug, and it should be fixed going forward.

                                Hi Sandeep,

                                 

                                CF updating appears a much simpler task in CF10 versa CF9,8,7. To update via CFadmin or “manual method” both work without messing about performing Unzip file copy steps.

                                 

                                Like CF10 Server Update.

                                 

                                Thanks once more, Carl.
