Overview


    The RapidFire (RF) Update, RF9002 contains the security patch updates.

    Requirements

    The requirement for installing the RapidFire RF9002 is as follows:

      • You must apply the Service Pack 1 (9.0.1) of Control Compliance Suite 9.0 released on March, 2009 (Symantec_Control_Compliance_Suite_DC_9.0.1_Win.exe).
      • You must apply RF9000 and RF9001 on the bv-Control for UNIX agent (target computers) before applying RF9002.

      • Installing the update

        Before installing the RF9002 RapidFire Update, you must close all the RMS products that are running on the computer.

        To install the RapidFire Update RF9002 perform the following steps:

          1. Copy the RapidFire file RF9002.rf to a known location on the local disk. Do not change the file name.
          2. Launch the RMS® Console.
          3. Expand the bv-Control for UNIX icon located on the left pane tree of the RMS Console.
          4. Right-click RapidFire Updates folder.
          5. Select Add RapidFire from the shortcut menu.
          6. In the File Selection dialog, locate the RapidFire file RF9002.rf saved in step 1.
          7. Select the file and click Open to initiate the RapidFire Update installation process. This RapidFire must be applied on the computers hosting the Information Server only and not on the client computers.
      • To apply the RapidFire on the UNIX target computers, the RapidFire mechanism supports two options. The first option lets you update all the UNIX target computers at the enterprise level while the second option lets you update the selected UNIX target computers only.
          • To update all the target computers in the enterprise
          • Select the appropriate server group in the product container.
          • To apply a RapidFire on the selected server group, click the Action>Update RapidFire menu.

          • To apply a RapidFire on the UNIX target computer, click the Action>Update RapidFire menu.
