Whilst not spelt out in the Installation instructions currently attached
to the above patch, it's expected that in step 1 you download the patch
on your desktop then copy it to the Filr appliance using an SCP client
(I suggest WinSCP).

Another way, currently unsupported, is to use wget that is included on
the Filr appliance:

wget --auth-no-challenge --user <NovellID> --password <NovellPassword>
-O Filr-1.0.0-HP1.zip
"http://download.novell.com/sendredirect?target=%2Fprot%2Ff1DBvGl4UAY%7E%2Fpatchfiles%2FFilr-1.0.0-HP1.zip&buildid=f1DBvGl4UAY~&fileid=Lb64Dg_32so~&mirror=AkamaiHost&nohost=false"

replacing <NovellID> and <NovellPassword> with your username and
password for Novell.com.

Note the space in front of wget is deliberate so command (including
Novell ID and password) is NOT saved to history - otherwise you should
do "history -c" afterwards to clear the history.

HTH.

Hmm... steps 1-3, 6, and 7 pretty much spell that out. 🙂

Re: Filr 1.0 Hot Patch 1 ready for download

The document for the Hot Patch states "This patch should only be applied to a site that is currently on Novell Filr 1.0.0 (Build 3193 / April 27, 2013)". Now I had installed from Novell downloads Filr.x86_64-0.0.459.ovf.zip, which seems to identify it's version as 1.0.459. So how do I determine if this is "Build 3193" and the HP applies?

Unless you're running a build obtained elsewhere, you've got the right
build. But if you want to double-check, log into the admin console and
on the initial page of the console you'll see the build info.

Novell Filr Administration
Release: Novell Filr 1.0.0
Build: 3193 / April 27, 2013
Novell Filr Appliance 1.0.459

Re: Filr 1.0 Hot Patch 1 ready for download

Well, that's why I asked, because after I login as vaadmin, at the top of the initial page of the console I just see:

Server: 172.x.x.x
Version: 1.0.459

Both of your screenshots are from the appliance admin console. Log
into the Filr as admin and then go to the admin console. That's the
one that will display the additional build info that I posted from my
Filr server.

Re: Filr 1.0 Hot Patch 1 ready for download

Oh, THAT admin console. Ok, good now. Thanks. (But hmmn, perhaps someplace there should be a correlation between "1.0.459" and "1.0.0 Build 3193" ? Maybe we need another wiki page like the one for GW versions/builds?) 😉
