How to hotfix FSPM for Linux 10.x

KultisJeppe W/ Alumni Posts: 16 Security Scout

I downloaded the hotfix for FSPM for Linux (, unzipped it and had a look at the readme. It says to stop the AUA, install the new version of AUA from the hotfix package, then restart AUA. Simple enough.

# service fsaua stop
Shutting down F-Secure Automatic Update Agent: [ OK ]
# rpm -i fspmaua-8.36.67-1.x86_64.rpm file /opt/f-secure/fsaua/bin/fsaua from installation of f-secure-automatic-update-agent-8.36.67-1.x86_64 conflicts with the file from f-secure-automatic-update-agent-8.26.6240-1.i386


(and another 9 messages like it)


Fair enough, I'll just remove it then.

# yum remove f-secure-automatic-update-agent-8.26.6240-1.i386
Removing because of dependencies: 


Ok, so I can't install it, and I can't remove it unless I want to reinstall the whole policy manager.


Is there any way around installing everything from scratch?


I'm on RHEL 6.6

    I recall there being some issue with the FSPMC for Linux and FSPMS 11.x, has this issue been resolved? So I can now use FSPMC with the 11.x?

    Hi Kultis.Jeppe,


    I am not sure what issues you are reffering to, to my knowlesge it is a better working version then the 10.x versions. However if you can point us to the direct issue/problem you are reffering to I could verify and see if it is resolved or still present. This information could also be part of the release notes of the product.

    There was an issue when 11.x was released. I'm not entirely sure what it was anymore, but we were unable to upgrade to 11.x last time (about a year ago) because of some limitation regarding using Linux. If that's no longer an issue, that's good.

    I just tried to install the 11.x rpm (fspms-11.31.60662-1.x86_64-rtm.rpm) on our system, but yum refused, stating that the package conflicted with 10.x (f-secure-policy-manager-server-10.20.46574-1.x86_64)

    I uninstalled the AUA and fspms 10.x with yum, which deleted the entire folders with our settings (tree structures, policies and certificates). I have backups, so it's not that huge an issue, but it just seems like there should be more of an instruction set to this than "1. Download. 2. Deploy.".


    Edit: I stand corrected. The folder was deleted, but the entire structure was still there. My apologies for assuming otherwise. We're now running 11.x with AUA version 8.36.67-1 (fspmaua-8.36.67-1.x86_64-rtm.rpm). 


    Thank you!

    I am unaware of that problem especially since version 11,x of Linux Policy Manager (PM) has only been out since December 2014. From the release notes upgrade instructions are also available:


    Red Hat, CentOS, SuSE

    Enter the following commands as the root user:

    # rpm -U fspmaua-8.36.67-1.i386-rtm.rpm<BR />

    # rpm -U fspms-11.31.60662-1.i386-rtm.rpm<BR />

    # rpm -U fspmc-11.31.60662-1.i386-rtm.rpm<BR />

    Note: Use the '--replacefiles' option on openSUSE 12.3 to upgrade Policy Manager Server and Policy Manager Console.

    Note: Use 64-bit installation packages when upgrading 64-bit platform versions of Policy Manager Console, Policy Manager Server and Policy Manager Automatic Update Agent.
