We have been using Patch Manager to download the Monthly MS Roll-ups from CA, but the security team wish to now start deploying Adobe Flash Player Updates, I set up the download but this originally failed, I believe I needed to add the Vendor Credentials. I have requested and had approved the "Adobe Software Distribution Request" so I have a URL Link ("Auth Code" to the download site) I have added the URL and my Userid and Password into the Adobe Vendor Credentials but this still fails to download.
Please if anyone else has configured Adobe downloads via Patch Manager please can you advise on the configuration.
You should not have to use vendor credentials to download Flash Player updates published by the Content Team as they contain publicly accessible urls.
If there is a certain patch that is failing to package, then please let me know.
Thanks for the reply, I am sure it is the "Flash Player Plugin and Flash Player Active X" Patches, I will check the UPM Log and get the full details and add them to my next reply...
I have removed the Vendor Credentials and retried the download but it still fails when downloading the exe file, the vbs file seems to download OK...
I have added the log files, if you could check and let me know what you think is causing the issue... If you cannot see what the issue is I will raise a support case for investigation.
The reason for the failure to package could have been because Adobe released new updates for Flash Player which replaced the download links for version 126.96.36.199.
We published the following new updates today:
Adobe Flash Player 188.8.131.52 PluginAdobe Flash Player 184.108.40.206 ActiveX
Adobe Flash Player 220.127.116.116 ActiveXAdobe Flash Player 18.104.22.1686 Plugin
The following updates have also been updated to point to active download links(archive zip) to successfully package:
Adobe Flash Player 22.214.171.1242 Plugin
Adobe Flash Player 126.96.36.1992 ActiveX
Adobe Flash Player 188.8.131.52 ActiveX
Adobe Flash Player 184.108.40.206 Plugin
You can wait for the next content download cycle to finish and then attempt to accept the patches.
Yes I have tried downloading the following
Adobe Flash Player 220.127.116.11 Plugin
Adobe Flash Player 18.104.22.168 ActiveX
but have the same issue, I will log an open call with CA Support.
Thanks for your assistance with this.
did you get a resolution to this?
Yes and No...
Yes the issues is when the UPM attempts to download via the HTTPS it failed with Peer Not Authenticated... No your second line support advised it is an issue with Windows or access to internet via the router settings...
I have had a look online and found that this error could occur due to certificates within apache httpclient 4.x...
Will close this as this is not to do with Vendor Credentials but more or a technical issue, if I still have problems I will raise a new incident about Apache.
