Did someone forget the "what's new" for 17.4.1?

Hi.

Maybe it's me, but besides the "known issues" in the readme, I can't
find any mentioning of the purpose of FTF1? Aka a list of fixes or
something?

Re: Did someone forget the "what's new" for 17.4.1?

https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7023769 seemed to be the most persistent issue.

There was a change in Quick Tasks in 17.4 agents to make them operate faster had issues in some cases....
17.4.1 fixes the issue, but also provides a setting to fall back to a legacy method in the event the fix proves to not be working.
However.....so far the fix previously applied to customers appear to be working well.

While its possible any one of the issues may be seen by some....the QTs was likely the most commonly reported issue.

It seems they pulled back the FTF or did I miss something?

The was not an issue with ZCM 17.4.1 itself, however....

There was a patch in the Appliance channel that was causing Symbolic Link Issues.
(Did not impact SLES or Windows Systems)
The patch was only out there briefly and pulled over a month ago, but did make it onto a limited number of ZCM Appliances.
If that patch was in place it could cause issues where the Symbolic Links would get lost and need to be re-created.

There is a script that will restore the Links if Lost and as script to backout the bad patch as well so it does not happen.

It's possible the Patch will be released "As Is" with more instructions such as a link to the script to resolve the issue and remove the bad OS patch
(Again, this patch was not part of any ZCM update...It came through the Suse Update Channel for the Appliance)
It's possible the Patch will have scripts added to the installer that check and correct the one patch level on the appliance first if the problem version exists.

It was simply an abundance of Caution after a customer was impacted by the issue.

Note: If the 17.4.1 reported as successful on an appliance install...It was successful.
If the unlikely issue was encountered....the install would report an error.

Hmmm...can never edit or delete previous post after 5min (aka 30 seconds) ...Grrrr.

---------------

There was patches release today (6.4.19) but these look as if they are the same PRU's you can find since 6-1-19 by manually searching for updates in ZCM. Speaking for ZCM17.4 - is this (ZCM/ZAM 17.4 Jun 2019 PRU) different that the "Jun 2019 PRU" released on June 1st?

It states you need to execute 'zman sui 7.4.Jun2019pru.zip' on server, which will enabled the PRU in System Updates Page.

I did not do this but have June PRU.

Is this correct or am I missing something? Is there another update coming down the pike?

Looks like there are some new TIDs out there for 17.4.1a (assuming 'a' being the revised 17.4.1, so it looks like the release is imminent). Actually upgrading our environment from 11.4.3 this weekend -- was hoping that this is out before Saturday. Time will tell.
