As this is back to back messages i think and assume that it would be due to
permission on the server rather than a copy issue.
If you feel that it is just a copy issue, try to deploy a file through a
package on the server normally and check.. if it says permission issue
better you have to look at the RBAC and provide proper permissions on it to
Please revert once fixed.
why are you trying to copy the files to the target?
when you 'remediate' the server, based on the analysis results, a deploy job will be generated, and this deploy job will copy the patches to the targets (only the patches needed on the specific target) and then install them.
if you only want to copy the patches, you could use the deploy job options and not run the 'commit' - the 'stage' phase is what does the file copy.
Some Windows cluster nodes need to be patched manually, so we are trying to know if we have option in bladelogic to copy the patches before we plan for manual patching
in this case , just for those clustered servers you just need to select the
advance option to just stop till stageing directory.. this is one of the
option.. there are many other options aswell..
why do they need to be patched manually?
can't you automate the cluster failover commands and fail the services, patch the node, fail back and patch the others ?
Bill you are right, but in many cases Wintel team /Unix team never agreed
to it in many cases.. Else, patching can be done without any reboot and
later as per their protocols they follow the procedure to reboot them
Yeah – but if it can be automated you should try and do it ☺ like we said, probably the best way is to run the staging phase of the job and not the commit.
Thank you for suggestion on this, we will suggest it to admins
yes, because the staging is not running there, only simulate. use the scheduling options below
I understand that i can schedule the jobs, but i wanted to know is there any way to do it without scheduling
No. just schedule the simulate and run the staging right after it.
