Applying PC-DCE 5.1.8

To upgrade to PC-DCE 5.1.8:

  1. Download PC-DCE 5.1.8. (See "Obtaining PC-DCE 5.1.8" above for download links.) 
      
  2. Unzip the files and then run Setup. You are given the choice to Modify, Repair, or Remove kits. Choose Repair. Your present installation will be updated to the new version.
      
  3. Reboot the machine. The update does not take effect until the machine has been rebooted.

    Note: If you are updating a host running the Security or CDS Server as a replica, it may take a minute or two for the daemons to resynchronize themselves with the master. Initially, the PC-DCE Service Panel may say the daemons are unavailable. After about one minute (or possibly longer for larger cells), click Refresh and the display will show that the servers are running normally.
