Environment

Issue



Java is embedded within the Commandcentral Storage (CCS) application and requires manual steps to upgrade to work with the application.


Error



There are many scans that can alert to vulnerabilities in a Java / JRE version and a patch would be required to upgrade the CCS application to the latest available Java version from Oracle.


Environment



 

Solaris 9 / 10 Server hosting the CCS Management Server.

Java / JRE from Oracle

 CCS 5.2 RU1, RU2, RU3, RU4

 


Cause



Java / JRE is embedded within the CCS application and the installer for Java updater updates a standalone installation


Solution
