Documentation missing from ITCA r14 ISO & CA Documentation site

  • 1.  Documentation missing from ITCA r14 ISO & CA Documentation site

    Posted May 03, 2016 09:08 PM

    It would appear that the ITCA r14 ISO is missing the Doc folder in the root of the ISO which has been present in all previous release ISO's.

     

    Also searching the document's section of the support page I only get CA IT Client Automation 12.8.

     

    Can anyone direct me to the IT Client Automation r14 documentation?

    Hi Richard,

     

    That page does not load

     

    https://docops.ca.com/ca-client-automation/14-0

     

    Page Not Found                                                                                       

    The page you were trying to reach could not be found. This could be because:

    • The page does not exist.
    • The page exists, but you do not have permission to view it.

    Hi,

    I notified the team who manages the documentation.  In the mean time I cut and pasted the doc into this thread

    Hi Yasuyuki,

     

    So this documentation is no longer available in a offline format such as PDF?

     

    Regards

    Craig.

    Hi Craig,

     

    ISO image doesn't have product manuals.

    You can create PDF file from DocOps site if you need offline format.

    I'm finding broken links (https://docops.ca.com/display/CLA/.Intelligent+Roll-up+Delivery+v14.0 ).  I'm looking for more info on the Intelligent Rollups.

    Bill,

    I get to it OK

     

    Here it is.  If you still cannot see it please open a support issue

     

    However, if you would like to discuss it in more detail drop me a note and I can call you.

    IntelliRollup is a special roll-up type that is designed to address the challenges, and yet offer the full functionality of a Full roll-up. In contrast to a Full roll-up that has embedded patch binaries, IntelliRollup contains only metadata of the constituent patches. An IntelliRollup consists of only scripts and configuration files, which makes it light. The supersedes section maintains the links to all the member patches.

    Ensure that the Domain Manager and Scalability Server are of 14.0 or higher versions for deployment of IntelliRollups. Agent can be of same or older version.

    When an IntelliRollup is accepted, CA Patch Manager verifies the list of all linked member patches. Each patch in turn is accepted, packaged, and registered to Software Delivery as an individual patch. If a member patch is already packaged and registered to Software Delivery, CA Patch Manager skips the member patch. Once all the members patches are packaged and registered, then only IntelliRollup itself is packaged and registered.

    Each IntelliRollup is registered to Software Delivery as a special Software Delivery group of type Patch Rollup. In addition to having all the individual patches as its members, this group also contains a special Software Delivery package of type Rollup. This package contains only the scripts and configuration files as its source. This package has 2 procedures of type Install and Configure. When an IntelliRollup is deployed, the Rollup package with Install procedure is sent to the target system. The package determines the list of required, not applicable, and already installed patches. In addition to sending these lists to Scalability Server, this package also requests Scalability Server to trigger the deployment jobs for the list of patches required.

    Once all the required patches are installed successfully, Scalability Server triggers the roll-up package with Configure procedure. This procedure writes the roll-up signature to the registry of the target system. Signature scan uses this information to determine the installation status of the roll-up on the system.

    [Fullscreen]<https://docops.ca.com/plugins/gliffy/viewer.action?inline=false&pageId=295903082&attachmentId=295907254&name=Intelli%20Rollup&lastPage=/pages/viewpage.action?pageId%3D295903082>

    For example,

    Consider that CA Patch Manager accepts an IntelliRollup that contains 100 patches for the first time. All the patches are accepted, packaged, and registered to Software Delivery. At the time of execution, only the roll-up package with Install procedure is sent to the target system. The Install procedure determines and asks the Scalability Server for the required patches. The Scalability Server then pushes only the required patches to the target system. If all the required patches are successfully installed on the system, the roll-up package with Configure procedure is executed.

    If the subsequent version of the IntelliRollup contains 150 patches, CA Patch Manager upon accepting the IntelliRollup, packages, and registers only the extra 50 individual patches. The initial 100 patches are skipped because they are already packaged and registered. At the time of execution, the roll-up package with Install procedure asks Scalability Server for required patches from the newly added 50 patches. Again, only the required patches are pushed to the target system. If all the required patches are successfully installed on the system, the roll-up package with Configure procedure is executed.

    So for any newer version of IntelliRollup, only the additions and updates are registered in the system and only what is applicable is sent to the target system.
