Installing the HP-UX Patch Downloader

In an environment where access to the Internet is restricted to one server, patch binaries and metadata are downloaded to a predefined repository before analysis begins. To download patches from the vendor site, you must first download and install one of the following utilities:

  • HP-UX Patch Downloader, a Java-based tool
  • SWA External Downloader

Installation starts from the patchanalysis.zip file, which was extracted during installation of Vendor Patch Content and placed in a directory on the BMC Server Automation Application Server.

Before you begin

Ensure that the host computer on which you install the HP-UX Patch Downloader or the SWA External Downloader also has Java version 1.5 or later installed.

To install the HP-UX Patch Downloader

  1. Locate the patchanalysis.zip file and extract the contents to a location on a server with internet access.
    The HPOakland_Downloader.zip file is placed in the SupportFiles directory (/patchanalysis/SupportFiles).
  2. Extract the contents of the HPOakland_Downloader.zip file to a directory on the BMC Server Automation Application Server.

    The following files are placed in the directory:
    • HPUXContentDownloader.bat: The HP-UX Patch Downloader for Windows.
    • HPUXContentDownloader.sh: The HP-UX Patch Downloader for UNIX or Linux.
    • configuration.properties: A configuration file that specifies parameter values.
    • A ReadMe.txt file with basic information about the HP-UX Patch Downloader
    • A lib directory containing the HPUX_Downloader.jar file.

You are now ready to run the downloader and download patches. For more information, see the following pages:

To install the SWA External Downloader

  1. Locate the patchanalysis.zip file and extract the contents to a location on a server with internet access.
    The SWA_External_HPDownloader.zip file is placed in the SupportFiles directory (/patchanalysis/SupportFiles).
  2. Extract the contents of the SWA_External_HPDownloader.zip file to a directory on the BMC Server Automation Application Server.

    The following files are placed in the directory:
    • downloader.pl: a Perl wrapper for the Oakland Downloader
    • HPUXWebRequestClient: A directory containing the Oakland Downloader.
    • swa.conf: A sample configuration file, which simulates the /etc/opt/swa/swa.conf configuration file in which you perform the actual configuration
    • downloader.conf: A configuration file read by the downloader to obtain the location of the Java software and the Proxy URL.

You must now configure the SWA External Downloader so that it can be used in patch downloads. For more information, see Configuring the online SWA External Downloader.
