I noticed when I logged inot NetMRI today that there is another NetMRI HotFix available. However, I can't find any infomration about the HotFix on the Infoblox Support site. My company requires that software updates be vetted and scheduled before application. Is there someway to get infomration about NetMRI HotFixes before installing them?

It's been a while since I used NetMRI but running "autoupdate" in the CLI should list you the available updates and give you a short description of what it does before asking to apply it.

As far as I know, there is a pending RFE to display the description of hotfixes

The most recent HotFix patch does not show a description when running "autoupdate". I am amazed that there is no explination or release notes available for these patches. It doesn't appear that teir one support has access to HotFix documentation either.

That is strange. Can you please share the filename of the hotfix ?

I am logging in via SSH and running the following.

 

mri01> autoupdate

You can enter 'y' at that point. This will only downlod the patch . However, it will again ask your preference after showing the description, as in the following

That is good information, but it does not help. It is absolutly unacceptable that there is no out of system notice or release note distributed for hotfix updates. Requiring the system to download and unpack the update before showing a description of the patch does not count as documentation.

I will pass this concern over to Support Management. Temporarily , until we have a clear defined process on this, I can start a new topic in the forums, which will have details of the hotfixes available on our autoupate server. Will that help ?
