How to preserve FDE preboot customization when upgrading Endpoint Management from R77.30 to R77.30.01
If you enabled the FDE blade and you have changed the default Pre-Boot customization (using the Common Client Policy "Default Client Setting Interface" action), perform the following steps before upgrading the Security Management server from R77.30 to R77.30.01:
- Copy the $FWDIR/conf/ep_uepm_files_tbl.C and $FWDIR/conf/ep_fde_drivers_tbl.C files to a Temp Location.
- Run the R77.30.01 upgrade without rebooting the server.
- Download the ep_uepm_files_tbl_upgrade.xml file and copy it to the $FWDIR/conf/ directory.
- Set its permission to 777 , by running the command:
chmod 777 $FWDIR/conf/ep_uepm_files_tbl_upgrade.xml
- Override the $FWDIR/conf/ep_uepm_files_tbl.C and $FWDIR/conf/ep_fde_drivers_tbl.C files with the files from the Temp Location.
- Run $UEPMDIR/bin/fwsetUpgrade (note that on the Windows OS it has a ".bat" extension )
- Reboot the server.
