Package: (AP60_SU28.7.pkg) ServiceUpdate 28 (6.0.28) for AutoPilot M6
This memo contains the following information:
Service updates are non-cumulative service packs, and usually require a certain level of a service pack installed. Service updates usually include bug fixes, and minor enhancements.
IMPORTANT: ServiceUpdate 23 (6.0.23) and higher increases the minimum requirement for java to 1.7 or higher.
IMPORTANT: ServiceUpdate 21 (6.0.21) introduces changes to the fact state recording data model. See "Release Notes" section below for more details.
IMPORTANT: ServiceUpdate 19 (6.0.19) introduces changes to the fact state recording data model. See "Release Notes" section below for more details.
IMPORTANT: ServiceUpdate 16 (6.0.16) introduces changes to the sensor SQL logging data model. See "Release Notes" section below for more details.
IMPORTANT: ServiceUpdate 12 (6.0.12) introduces fundamental changes to the fact structure (see issues 0003929, 0003931) and as a result is not compatible with pre SU12 instances. ServiceUpdate 12 must be installed on all instances within M6 domain including domain server, cep servers, admin consoles, m6 web consoles. Mixing SU12 with pre SU12 instances will cause communication failures. It is recommended that all M6 instances are upgraded to SU12.
- AutoPilot M6 6.0
- ServiceUpdate 6.0.27 (Service updates are not cumulative). Can also be applied to SU27.1
The update provides enhancements relevant for both server and administration installations. It is recommended that you install this package on all AutoPilot M6 6.0 installations.
- Stop all AutoPilot services and applications
- Copy the package into [AUTOPILOT_HOME]/updates
- From command prompt:
[AUTOPILOT_HOME]/bin/pkgman ../updates/AP<ver>_SU<#>.pkgwhere <ver> AutoPilot version, # service update number
- Verify installation (use "pkgman -info" to list all installed packages)
[AUTOPILOT_HOME]/bin/pkgman -verify "ServiceUpdate"
To uninstall latest ServiceUpdate:
[AUTOPILOT_HOME]/bin/pkgman -uninstall "ServiceUpdate"
Updated Nastel AutoPilot M6 books can be obtained from the Documentation page.
About SU28 (.x)
- performance and usability improvements
- performance and usability improvements
- ServiceUpdate 26 (6.0.26) provides out of the box support for the Nastel support portal. If you would like more contact, please contact your support representative.
About SU25 (.2)
IMPORTANT: ServiceUpdate 25 (6.0.25) integrates Autopilot Insight enablement into the base installation. If you have installed apinsight.pkg, you should uninstall it before applying SU25 and keep backups of tnt4j.properties, log4j,properties, and sinknames.properties, and global.propertues then restore after applying the service update
- SU24 is a maintenance release to fix several product issues.
SU23 is a maintenance release to fix several product issues. It addresses an issue running executable files on Windows with Java 60 or higher. However, since some binaries may be in use, after installing, rename bin\pkgman2.exe and bin\apman2.exe replacing the original files.
SU22 updates several previously shipped jar files and older versions are deleted.
A new version of the web console (m6console.war) is included which has code signed using a non-expiring certificate.
SU21 introduces changes to the sensor logging schema. "Location" column must be added to all sensor logging tables. Below is an example for MySQL:
ALTER TABLE `m6_schema`.`your-table` ADD COLUMN `Location` VARCHAR(148) AFTER `ObjectType`;
The new column must be added to all sensor tables created using SU19 or earlier (SU20 created this attribute for new tables but didn't use it).
A new version of the web console (m6console.war) is included and must be manually deployed to the application server (removing any prior versions). This can be confirmed by checking the copyright date on the login screen and it specifies 2015.
New environment variables are introduced to allow configuring SMTP email settings such as authentication and TLS. These include sensor.default.email.smtp (email host), sensor.default.email.port (SMTP port: default 25), sensor.default.email.auth (authentication required: true/false), sensor.default.email.tls (use TLS: true/false), sensor.default.email.user (auth user), sensor.default.email.password (auth password). These can used or overridden in the policy manager e-mail properties tab.
SU20 introduces changes to the fact recording data model, specifically to the fact state and fact summary tables(ft_state, ft_summary). Existing ft_state & ft_summary table need to be upgraded before running fact state recording with SU20. Additional table 'ft_anomaly' has been introduced in SU20. This table is used to record fact anomalies. Fact anomalies are recorded only when
"<Service>/Properties/Recording/Record Fact Anomalies" is set to true.
See <aphome>/sql-scripts/system/<schema>_update_20.sql upgrade sql files.
See <aphome>/sql-scripts/system/<schema>.sql files for details.
SU19 introduces changes to the fact recording data model, specifically to the fact state table (ft_state). Existing ft_state table need to be upgraded before running fact state recording with SU19.
See <aphome>/sql-scripts/system/<schema>_19.sql files for details.
SU18 introduces important changes:
1) updated SYSTEM/nodes/node_health.bsv policy, which includes additional sensors:
* Monitoring CEP server GC activity
* Monitoring communication throughput
2) Updated M6Console (m6console.war)
3) apfact usage has changed to avoid value parsing problems.
* Dropped support for fact=value[description][actions] naming
convention when publishing facts due to conflict when parsing fact values
which include special characters such as().  are no longer used to
delimit descr/action fields.
