Content Database

Large App Icon

I’ve just added a new feature to my BigFix.me website… the Content Database!!! Come check it out!

This side-project catalogues fixlets, tasks, and analyses into one big content database (CDB). The first available feature of the CDB is the ability to search relevance statements. Type in one or more keywords like "operating system" or "exists" and you’ll get back tons of examples of how to use those inspectors or key words within your own relevance statements. The database even knows what type of data will be returned and we sort all the results by re-use count, which can be helpful in finding the most popular statements.

If you want to contribute to the database, simply logon or register and visit our import BES content page.

TEM SUA Upgrade 1.3.0.592 –> 1.3.1.597

Lately I released an article on installing Tivoli Endpoint Manager’s add-on product Software Usage Analysis (SUA) v1.3.0.592.  Well… we have release another upgrade and here’s how you can upgrade your installation:

Launching the installation is pretty easy… unlike the initial installation, there is basically one “step”.  Launch the installer:

SUA_Upgrade_1

SUA_Upgrade_2

Typical license agreement stuff.

SUA_Upgrade_3

SUA_Upgrade_4

SUA_Upgrade_5

Since this is an upgrade, we are good about warning you that no one will be able to access the GUI interface at this point.

SUA_Upgrade_6

We’ll need to confirm the user account that is being used for the services here.

SUA_Upgrade_7

SUA_Upgrade_8

I ran into one little problem where but it was due to service account permissions to the database.  After adjusting them for the duration of this install, the installation continued.

SUA_Upgrade_10

SUA_Upgrade_13

SUA_Upgrade_14

SUA_Upgrade_17

SUA_Upgrade_19

 

The installation went well with just the one permissions based hiccup.  To confirm installation was successful simply log into the GUI and look at the bottom right for version and catalogue numbers.

SUA_Upgrade_20
