New Hotfixes Available

All,

 

We (the Vault team) would like to make the group aware of a new hotfix that we just released to the support page.  You can download the hotfix here for 2012, 2011 and 2010. 

 

2012 - http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?id=18480860&siteID=123112&linkID=9261341

2011 - http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?id=18480822&siteID=123112&linkID=9261341

2010 - http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?id=18480586&siteID=123112&linkID=9261341

 

This latest hotfix addresses a number of potential issues around property synchronization, copy design, permissions as well as some cumulative updates depending upon the release.

 

One important fix addresses a recently discovered issue with the Purge command that has affected a limited group of customers. In some cases, the Purge command has left some unresolved file references, resulting in an unresolved reference dialog or incomplete where-used results.

 

While we work to resolve this issue, we recommend that our customers discontinue use of the Purge command, and have included technology within the latest hotfix that restricts and reduces the impact of the Purge command. 

 

Please continue to monitor this newsgroup thread to learn more about additional software updates as they become available. 

 

Kindest regards,

Jeremy Lambert

6. Run ADMS b2bmigrate operation in command line mode:
        a. Example: Connectivity.ADMSConsole.Exe -Ob2bmigrate -VUadministrator -VPadmin_password -DBUsql_user -DBPsql_password
        b. NOTE: Replace 'admin_password' with the appropriate administrator password for the -VP switch.
        c. The last two command line parameters are required only if the 'sa' password is not the default password.

 

A few questions.

1. Is this step necessary? It seems to work without migrating.

2. My administrator password is blank, what should I do?

Yes step 6 is necessary to run.

You can use the -VP command without putting in a password.

How do I tell that the hotfix has been properly applied? Will it show up in the "about" ?

Applied hotfixes will not be shown in the About dialog.  You can examine Programs and Features, select the 'View installed updates' link and the hotfix number will appear adjacent to your qualifying installed product.

 

You may also check the version of the updated file(s) as specified in the accompanying readme.

 

However, this will not ensure that the hotfix has been installed completely.  You should always examine the readme to see if there are further instructions.  In this case, a Vault migration is required to consume the change.

Does this hotfix disable the purge altogether?

 

I've tried purging old versions of a file that are not, and have not ever, been used in another assembly. Running the purge on the specific from the client and also doing a global purge from the server console seem to have no effect. Even IDW files seem to be locked from purging.

Exactly the same problem.  Purging cannot be done on the Vault client UI. Before the patch you had the ignore option box which allowed you to purge old versions regardless.  Ticking this option does nothing now

 

Is there going to be a fix even though 2013 is out now?

Hi Gents,

 

Please continue to watch this space. At this stage development are actively working towards a resolution around the purge functionality and the current restriction we have placed on purge in the 2012 and 2013 products.

 

There will be updates released for both 2012 and 2013 in due course.  Please feel free to reach out to me directly if  you have further concerns.

 

Cheers,

Hello,

 

we have an issue with hotfix : Hotfix - DWF Creation (DL18963992)

 

It doesn't install on Vault 2012 Update 1 ( basic ) but in readme all versions of Vault are listed.

 

Best regards,

 

Alex

Hi Alex,

 

That is a typo in the readme.  The update applies to versions containing document management functionality (i.e. Vault Workgroup, Vault Collaboration and Vault Professional).

 

This update does not apply to basic Vault.  I'll correct the typo.
