Update Ubuntu

Jump to solution

Hello,

Installed the ova for SMG. Now the underlying OS (Ubuntu) shows there are updates avaiable. And even a release upgrade.

Is it recommended to do the release update? Or does the GWAVA update system handle the OS updates as well?

You can run updates for the current Ubuntu version 16, but do NOT update to a higher version.  See this TID: https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7023256

MicroFocus products that are released on the common appliance model take care of everything.  However, the current SMG was created under GWAVA and so quite honestly I'm not sure.  I had made the assumption that it was handled the same way, but that may not be true.  Let me check and get back to you.

As a note.  Our next release of the Secure Messaging Gateway will be on the SUSE common appliance.  We are currently in a closed Beta with this release and hope to ship it to all customers soon.  Once this happens we encourage everyone to move to the new SUSE based appliance as we will no longer release on the Ubuntu appliance.

Great news Mike!  The common appliance model works very well.  I'm glad SMG will be available on it soon.

This is an urgent step! My Customers are puzzled obout this weak Ubuntu-VA.
It looks like MF does not stand by SUSE ... and search for another base ...
Is there a time line for the release?

You can explain to them that the decision to use Ubuntu was made while SMG was a third party product.  Now that it is owned by Micro Focus, it is in the process of being moved to their SuSE common appliance.  Mike mentioned that it is in beta and they hope to ship soon.  Whether or not he wants to state what soon means is up to him.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread we are in Beta.   If all goes well I hope to have the SLES version available before the end of September.
