Re: HPCA Agent Version Upgradation


Are ypu talking about "applying" 7.80.1 patch ? If yes then please contact HPCa support to get the latest CP. 7.80.1 is extremely old and you may miss quite a few of the fixes done on 7.80 .

Each patch comes with a Release notes document. You may find all the information you need to install the patch there.

Re: HPCA Agent Version Upgradation

One example of installation of an Agent patch could be...


Installing the version 7.80.2 patch
1 Back up your system.
2 Download the patch file.

3 Extract the import.txt, ClearZSTOP.tcl, .xpi and .xpr contents of the .zip file into the HP Configuration Management Configuration Server (CM Configuration Server) \bin directory. The default location is:
– C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\CM\ConfigurationServer\bin
The patch zip also contains, the binaries included in is for convenience only. Hewlett-Packard recommends that you use self-maintenance to deploy the entire patch.
4 Stop the HPCA Configuration Server service (ZTOPTASK).
5 Take a backup of the entire HPCA Configuration Server Database (HPCA CSDB).
6 For Client Automation Standard/Starter see the instructions for removing ZSTOP expressions.
7 Open a command prompt, change directories to \bin, and run the command:
8 Check the zedmams.log file to verify that each of the packages returns with either rc=4 or rc=0.
9 Restart the HPCA Configuration Server service (ZTOPTASK).
Removing ZSTOP expression for deployment on CAE environment
1 Open the HPCA Admin CSDB editor
2 Navigate to the PRIMARY.PRDMAINT.PACKAGE Class and open the package that needs to be installed. For example, RAM_WIN32_ALL_<CurrentVersion>
3 Clear the ZSTOP000 value or set the value to 0.

Hi arul461,


I would recommend you to apply the latest 7.80 patches both for the Agent and the CORE server. You can apply the latest patch without installing previous ones first.


Assuming you are running a Core and Satellite environment, please find the latest patches below:


Windows Agent Patch 7.80.10:


Linux Agent Patch 7.80.10:


Core&Satellite Patch 7.80.12:


Instructions are included in the release notes for each patch.


Please contact HP Support if you have any issues or need further information.


Thank you!
