MARS upgrade from CLI - not working

Unanswered Question
Aug 14th, 2007

here's the syntax from the MARS online help to run the CLI upgrade utility

pnupgrade [user] [passwd]

works ok if using FTP and "package" is located in the root directory of the FTP server

trying to download and install an upgrade from a non-root subfolder and MARS complains.

is there some restriction on where the upgrade package resides on the source server?



I have this problem too.

Upgrade from CLI will work on

HTTPS, HTTP (TCP port 80), or FTP

At the command line, you can also upgrade from the DVD drive, which does not require any extra opened ports

thanks - I see the various protocol options but the issue here seems to be the upgrade (file) path - if I try to point MARS anywhere but the root (/) directory on the FTP server it does not work.

What type of FTP server are you employing for this upgrade?

I'm not ruling out it could be a MARS issue, or it may be your particular FTP server may only look in the root directory.

Be interested in hearing what you determine.

Hope this helps.

the ftp server is a product calledMoveIT-DMZ - which apparently supports FTP, HTTP, HTTPS, SCP, etc.

I also had the same problem with a freeware FTP server (WARftpdaemon) running on my laptop - upgrade works fine unless I put the upgrade files in some subdirectory.
