If the availability of a new release is announced by Boole Server, the administrator can relaunch the Console to carry out the updates.
Depending on the type of repository, any preparatory activities for the update may be necessary:
Boole Server repository: no user activity is required
local repository – the user will need to update their local repository by following the instructions in the Update Repository guide
By pressing the REFRESH button/icon, the application updates the information regarding the server components installed on the different nodes. During the operation, a waiting panel is shown with a progress-bar whose progress corresponds to the number of interrogated nodes.
At the end of the operation, if it was not possible to query one or more nodes, a summary window will be shown showing the nodes without feedback.
By pressing OK it is possible to return to the main screen.
Note: The application allows you to continue even though a node is not reachable, this node will not be updated until the reachability problem is resolved.
At this point you can proceed with the Performing updates procedure.
