    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.0

    Problem Symptoms

    • Recently upgraded & trying to use AutoUpdate
    • Updated voyager.ini file's [Upgrade] stanza for AutoUpdate
    • Attempt to update clients results in "There are no files=strings!"


    One or more of the following:

    • [Upgrade] stanza entries missing ending slash.
    • update.txt missing on server
    • Default password for "clients" user has been changed on server, and does not match password in [Upgrade] stanza.


    1. Open voyager.ini file on PC for editing.
    2. Locate the [Upgrade] stanza.
    3. Edit the Voyager= and Media= entries so they end with a slash. Example: Voyager=http://<user>:<pass>@<server IP or hostname>:7099/autoupdate/voyager/
    4. Save the file.
    5. Launch client to trigger AutoUpdate.


    1. Log on to server as voyager user.
    2. Ensure update.txt is in /m1/voyager/clients/autoupdate/voyager
    3. Ensure update.txt begins with


    <list of files & relative paths for update>
