By Manoj Jannu, QA Specialist, Software AG
UpdateManager by default lists only the current / latest fix for each product. However, there is an undocumented option that will allow users to see (and install) older fixes as well.
Usage : SUM must be launched as follows:
This property pertains to product versions which have reached End-of-Maintenance (EOM)
customers who purchase an End-Of-Maintance-Extension license, SUM will show fixes built after the EOM deadline. All SAG employee userIDs see this "extended" (EOME) view by default. The "-showEOM true" option may be useful for GS engineers to know what the EOM (cutoff) fix levels are. To use this option, SUM must be launched as follows:
In CMD mode, you can capture the currently installed fixes for a target installation with the -action viewInstalledFixes option:
Anytime SUM is run in an "online" mode (ie. "Action = Install fixes from Software AG Empower" or "Action = Create or add fixes to fix image"), as soon as the user is authenticated by Empower, SUM will self-update itself to the latest SUM build.
You can override this default behavior by setting the property selfUpdateMode=OFF in sum.cnf file
