Applying a DNS/DHCP Server patch - BlueCat Integrity - 9.3.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Integrity

With the DNS/DHCP Server patch uploaded into Address Manager, it can now be applied to your managed DNS/DHCP Servers.

Note: BlueCat advises customers to apply patches/hotfixes/upgrades during a controlled or planned outage. Customers should schedule a maintenance window during non-peak times in order to minimize the effects of this interruption. For detailed information on effects on service, refer to the patch/hotfix/upgrade release notes.
Note: The DNS/DHCP Server Administration Console will be unavailable during the patch/hotfix/upgrade application process. For patches/hotfixes that do not reboot the DNS/DHCP Server, the message "Update has been issued. Please wait while the server is updated" may persist in the Administration Console after application is complete. Once the Address Manager UI displays confirmation that application of the patch/hotfix has completed, this message can be cleared in the DNS/DHCP Server Administration Console by pressing Enter.
