The server policy package is typically created at a client. The log-in may also include logging in a workstation to a network tree. A system administrator may then import the workstation, using the workstation information, and notify the client. If rule determining module 512 determines that one or more rules are to be applied to the task, rule applying module 514 may be used to apply the one or more rules. It's no wonder many systems aren't getting the patches they require. The import service may create a workstation object based on at least a portion of the registration information. Once the demonstration application proved a hit with customers, Novell's software-engineering organization took over the code and rewrote it from scratch in.
This utility enables you to reconfigure the Sybase service. This new product has integrated patch, endpoint security, and asset management as well as the ability to provision desktops and single servers. After receiving notification of a vulnerability and patch, PatchLink automatically tests and verifies each patch. More particularly, the invention relates to a system and method that enables a client to locate an import service using the domain name system and to obtain a workstation object by requesting registration of a workstation. The upgrade process for Workstation Inventory can be more complex, depending on how many servers you have with Inventory software and databases. This ensures that all systems are protected, even new systems that are introduced into the network. Criteria may include rules established by, for example, a system administrator or other user, that specifies how a workstation is to be named, where the workstation is to be created, how user rights are to be managed, etc.
It's cost-prohibitive and ineffective at protecting your systems. The import service may maintain records indicating a workstation name, address, server associated with the workstation, or other information. But in the past two years, the sheer complexity of networks and number of patches have rendered this approach ineffective. Import service calling module 302 may also retrieve information about the workstation and compare that information with registration information received from the workstation. Synchronizing module 324 may then be used to synchronize the information retrieved by the import service calling module 322 with the registration information received from the client. A client may register workstation information about a client.
Access determining module 506 may then be used to determine whether the service has rights to access the system determined by system determining module 504. Step 412 may then search a policy governing the service for criteria related to the task requested. The client may register a workstation by using the domain name system to locate an import service for registering the workstation. The method requires the use of non-; radioactive carriers. Step 120 may then be used to determine whether criteria exists for the workstation to be registered. Micro Focus Software Inc Original Assignee Micro Focus Software Inc Priority date The priority date is an assumption and is not a legal conclusion. The import service may be used to determine whether the workstation has been moved or renamed.
Upgrade the root server first, then the intermediate servers, and finally the leaf servers. No additional actions are required to upgrade Remote Management. Say you are the administrator of a medium-sized network of 10 servers and 1,000 desktops. It also displays the number of systems in your environment that require the patch. If you choose No, the database is migrated when the Inventory service starts for the first time. DaNae Dayley has been working with Photoshop for 18 years and is still constantly amazed at the cool stuff it can do! Even the release of patches causes significant problems for your organization because you have to dedicate resources to monitor security alerts; research associated problems; and acquire, test and implement the relevant patches on systems throughout your enterprise. By July 25, 2003, public code was released on the Internet that exploited this vulnerability.
The workstation import service may populate the workstation object with default values and update workstation properties with current registration information. For example, a workstation object may be removed after a predetermined time period has elapsed. Understanding and Creating Server Software Packages. If a determination is made that the network address and user name did not return successfully, step 210 may be used to log an error indicating that the network address and user name did not return successfully and the method may stop at step 212. He is the author of several books. During the same time frame, roughly 8 million computer users used the tool to remove the worm and downloaded the patch to prevent reinfection. Google has not performed a legal analysis and makes no representation as to the accuracy of the date listed.
On the Inventory server screen, messages indicating that the database has been successfully migrated and initialized are displayed. Some of the settings that I have tried out include: Decreasing time step size from 0. For example, if a workstation has not been registered for a predetermined time period, for example, ten 10 days, the removal service may be called using step 130 and the removal service may remove the workstation object after ten 10 days of non-registration has elapsed. Synchronization may include updating a name or location of a workstation object at the client to coincide with information about the workstation retrieved by the import service. Another object of the invention is to provide a system and method that enables delegation of one or more tasks to a service. After gathering the values, step 222 may be used to push the values to a workstation object and push the workstation object to the client. The import service may then create a workstation object based on at least a portion of the registration information.
By default, this option is selected. System and method for policy-based registration of client devices 2007-06-26 2012-05-15 Novell, Inc. If you need detailed information about creating a terminal server Application object, see in in in the. For example, the criteria may include how to name a workstation, where a workstation is to be created, etc. A workstation object for the client may then be created based on at least a portion of the registration information using workstation object creating module 308. If the import service determines in step 108 that the workstation object has not been moved or renamed, step 112 may be used to register the workstation. Looking at the life of the Blaster virus, we see that a vulnerability was reported in the system on July 1, 2003.
