Installing on the Core, Rollup Core, and Web Console Servers

Note: Because Alternate Data Streams (ADS) may block files on Windows systems it is recommended that you extract the patch on the machine you are going to install it on.

  1. If an Off Core Inventory Server exists, stop the LANDesk Inventory Service on the off core inventory server.
  2. Double-click on the self-extracting executable and extract it.
  3. From the extracted files, run Setup.exe.
  4. When Setup completes, reboot the machine if a reboot is required.
  5. After applying the patch you may have to re-activate your core using the Core Server Activation Utility.
  6. If Step 1 was preformed, restart the LANDesk Inventory Service on the off core inventory server.

Note: The installer included with this patch writes a detailed log that can be used to help troubleshoot installation problems. After running setup.exe from the patch, the log is located in the ...\ManagementSuite\log folder.

Console Machines need to be updated to be able to connect to the updated core server and database.
