does this file exist: winzip190-64.msi not found at file://10.41.15.72/D/patch/Rohit_Payload_repo ?
Thanks for the prompt response.
This file is not present in the specified location as of now. I believe Catalog Update does not check for actual patches, instead it checks and creates a subset of required patches from metadata files.
Kindly correct my understanding.
When you perform offline patching you perform below operations:
2. repository location
3. Signature file i.e. hf7b.xml
4.information file Pd5.xml
Now when you update patch catalog what happens here is a catalog is been created with the help of metadata files (Hf7b.xml & pd5.xml). When this catalog process is going on parallel what happens is Patches from Payload location are copied into repository location. If certain patch is not present in payload then it gives such kind of warning. That means the specific patch is not present in payload location.
check the downloader.log of your Offline-Patch-Download utility as you should at least see an attempt to download the winzip190-64.msi .
If it failed, you should see an error message why.
If it did no even attempt to download it, then there probably is an issue in the Shavlik MetaData itself (which is not a rare thing)
Hi @Steffen Kreis,
He is performing offline patching i guess.
Correct and if you want to use an "Offline" Catalog, you need to download the Payload beforehand using the All-OS-Patch-Downloaders
But the patch catalog updated successfully , am I right ?
Thanks for your prompt responses which helped in getting more clarity on the Offline Patching process.
Will keep all the patches ready in the Payload Source location beforehand irrespective of versions.
