  •         REST API v1.3 is installed as a part of ViPR SRM 4.2.     
  •      
  •         However, it is also bundled as part of the "ViPR SRM December 2017 Apache Struts Update" security patch for ViPR SRM 4.1.1 - hence this security patch can be applied to install REST API v1.3 for ViPR SRM 4.1.1 environments.      
  •      
  •         To install the patch, download the "ViPR SRM December 2017 Apache Struts Update" patch from the Dell EMC Support site and follow the instructions as below:     
  •    
   
         
  1.         From the overall ZIP, extract to a temporary directory the platform-specific .ZIP file (Windows or Linux) depending on which operating system is running on the server that hosts your Front End Web Server.  In a vApp environment, use the Linux ZIP.  If your environment has multiple front end servers, follow these directions for each.     
  2.      
  3.         Login to centralized-management and then select Packages Management.     
  4.      
  5.         Click Upload button, browse and select the appropriate ZIP file from the temporary location, and upload it.  Once uploaded, a dialog will appear stating that packages have been uploaded.      
  6.      
  7.         On the server hosting the Front End, log in as a user with superuser privileges and navigate to the following directory: <APG_INSTALL>/Tools/Module-Manager/<VERSION>/bin.     
  8.      
  9.         Perform an update of the uploaded modules by choosing the correct option below.     
  10.    
   
      On Windows, run the following command.     
      launch-update.cmd --modules update     
     
      On Linux, run the following command.     
      ./launch-update.sh --modules update     
          
   
      Answer "y" to the prompted question and watch as all installed modules which need updating are updated. Note that the exact number may differ from the number of packages uploaded depending on optionally installed modules and which version of SRM you originally deployed.     
   
         
  1.         Once these modules are updated, make sure any shut down services are restarted using the following:     
  2.    
   
      On Windows, run the following command.     
      manage-modules.cmd service start ALL     
     
      On Linux, run the following command.     
      ./manage-modules.sh service start ALL
