I was wondering if someone can help me to upgrade my ACS Appliance with patch 188.8.131.52.4-SW. It was simple to apply this one in a normal server 2000. The ACS appliance I think is different because that we can access by normal terminal, keyboard and mouse.
Some were I read that is necessary a tomcat server?
ACS v184.108.40.206 patch 5 is available so go for this new patch.
You should have a pc which can access ACS through web interface. Keep the patch file on the PC.
Follow the steps below on the PC:
 Extract zipped file
 Look for ?autorun.exe? file and double click on it
 It will start a tomcat server on your desktop and you?ll see a web page asking for ACS
SE ip address :
Provide in the ACS SE ip address and press ?Install?
 It will prompt for ACS admin username and password as shown below :
Provide in the username and password and login.
 Then it bring up ACS GUI, then go to
System Configuration > Appliance Upgrade Status > Download,
Then we?ll get a screen where it will ask for ip address of Install Server :
Provide in ip address of system from where we are applying this patch, in our case our
desktop ip address, then click connect.
 It will show us following screen :
Click on ?Download Now?
Then it?ll show us this screen :
Press ?Refresh? Till we see following screen :
 Now press ?Apply Upgrade?. Then it?ll ask for confirmation :
Press ?Upgrade?, then we?ll get information regarding the patch.
It?ll take few minutes to apply that patch on appliance.
Then it?ll show us a confirmation message :
Press ?Done?, then system will reboot.
To confirm that patch has been applied successfully, goto
System Configuration > Appliance Upgrade Status
After everything is fine stop the tomcat server by clicking on ?stop distribution server? or
if you want to apply this patch on some more appliance click on ?Install Next?
Hope this helps.
