Problem

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

Error

There are many vulnerability 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 avaialble Java version from Oracle.

Environment

Windows 2003 / 2008 hosting the CCS Management Server.

Windows Server 2008 32 bit and 64 bit, Windows Server 2003 32 bit and 64 bit

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

Supported OS:
------------
Windows Server 2008 32 bit and 64 bit, Windows Server 2003 32 bit and 64 bit
