JetPatch Deployment Guide

Video Walkthrough

Step 1: Installing JetPatch

The next step is installing JetPatch. You can do this either by installing JetPatch RPM’s or installing Jetpatch’s OVA.

Step 2: Configure Patch Repositories

The first step is to configure your patch repositories. This approach is different depending on the operating system(s) being used, whether it be a Windows and or a Linux \ Unix environment. 

Step 3: Configuring JetPatch

  • Login to the JetPatch Console via Chrome or Firefox browser using https://< IP>/
    • When you first access the JetPatch Console, you will be asked to create an admin user with a strong password (at least 8 characters combining uppercase, numbers and symbols).
    • After creating this user, log into the console and accept the license.
    • Note: if there is an issue, please review proxy settings.

    • Go to Settings → Discovery Sources
    • Select “Add Discovery Source”
    • Choose Source TypevCenter, AWS, WSUS or Azure 
    • Fill in the credentials and test the connection

    • Go to Settings → Server Accounts
    • Select “Edit Credentials” to add new accounts
    • Select the Account Type and provide an Account Name, Username, and Password
    • For Linux you can select and use an SSH private key.

    • Once you’ve provided user accounts, you need to assign them to endpoints. To assign a user account to one or more endpoints:
      • In the Servers tab, select the relevant machines. Make sure all selected machines are of the same OS (Windows or Linux).
      • Go to Server Actions Assign Account, and select the relevant account. If there are many configured accounts, you can use our search function.

 

  • Deploy JetPatch Connector to all endpoints (see article)
    • In the Servers tab, select the endpoints, and click Server Actions Manage Intigua on Server:

    • Select Manage Intigua On Server, and under Configuration package, select a JetPatch services management package:
