Kudos to the BigFix team! @steve, I upgraded our DEV environment this evening and was pleasantly surprised. Our BFENT and BESREPOR DB2 databases total about 15GB in DEV and we have a fair amount of BFI data reporting up through the server. Took 23 minutes and 18 seconds to backup the databases and 21 minutes and 31 seconds to apply the 18.104.22.168 software updates. Now comes the fun of regression testing and validation.
On to WebUI. I did have to airgap our DEV environment post platform upgrade to pickup “BES Support” site version 1234 to then install the LONG awaited WebUI. @AaronBauer, I’m really hoping that the next WebUI release will include support for CentOS and SLES endpoints.
@gearoid, for future BES platform releases I would very much like to see improved process/state reporting from BESAdmin (RFE#80161). It would be beneficial to be able to tail a BESAdmin.log during the upgrade to have better overall insight into the process/progress. Currently there’s not much detail from BESAdmin while the upgrade is processing.
Again, kudos to the BigFix team!
