    flashplayer background update internal server hosted on apache2-linux - flashinstall.log errors

    NFS

      Hello everybody,

       

      i have set up an internal update server for flashplayer as described in the latest admin guide (v16).

      The web server hosting the files from the latest fp_background_update.cab is apache2 on SLES11.

      I have configured one client (win7sp1, fully patched) with mms.cfg pointing to the webserver. It has player v14 installed, activex and plug-in.

      From client using any browser i can see and download the files from the webserver.

      But background updater does not install the newer version, flashinstall.log shows that webserver is contacted and that xml-files are processed, but it produdes warning and error codes for which i cannot find any documentation, so tapping in the dark here.

      When looking at the webserver logs i can see following behaviour:

      - Client pulls the majorversion.xml and the version.xml for the new version (v16) - OK

      - Client tries to pull a patch.xml, which does not exist in the fp_background_update.cab. - STRANGE

      - Client pulls the patch.xml (that i manually provided by downloading it via wget to webserver) - OK

      - Client tries to pull whatever it is and causes webserver error 400, what usually means client bad request - BAD

       

      This is access-log from webserver without and with patch.xml provided:
