Hotfix of Expedition

Is there a place that the hotfix xan be downloaded rather than using the CLI method with apt-get? My server is behind a very strict firewall and cannot access the sites needed for apt-get to function.

 

Can the hotfix be downloaded and installed from the cli locally?

Expedition itself only needs one debian package to get updated. That package is hosted in our repository located at:

 

https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com

 

The access is made via (ssl) but we should detect as paloalto-updates app-id if your firewall is a Palo Alto Networks device.

 

Best Practices. The funcitonality of BPA uses some external dependencies located in Internet and while the update process occurs Expedition tries to go to Internet to find the latest version of those depencies. If you dont have Internet access Expedition will wait for the timeout and will not update them.  But BPA it goes on its own. 

 

If you want to download the hotfix by hand and upload them to your Expedition VM you can just do something like this

 

https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com/expedition-updates/expedition_1.0.106.all.deb(fixed the broken link)

 

once you upload this file to Expedition you can update by running this command:

 

sudo dpkg -i expedition_1.0.106.all.deb

I tried to use proxy, it worked to a extend. But for some reason it tried to go and use pip to download some python package. And that bypassed all my proxy settings. Ended up open wide in my (atm non palo)firewall temporary.

I can try this now (looking forward to the release notes for the new hotfix)

Re: Hotfix of Expedition

That did not work either. Will try again next time. But if it works with just dl the deb package its much easier for me :-)
