This task explains how to commit
or roll back service packs.
After installing a service pack, you may want to spend some time using the service pack for validation purposes, before making it officially available to your end users. "Committing" a service pack means applying the service pack to your installation, so that it becomes the official working level. This deletes the previous level, thereby saving disk space.
After spending some time using the service pack for validation purposes, you may find that the service pack is not suitable. If this is the case, you can "roll back" the service pack: rolling back a service pack uninstalls the service pack, and restores the software level to the level prior to installing the service pack.
As explained in Getting Information About Installed Software, you can identify at any time the level of software on your computer.
|You must be an administrator to commit or roll back software.|
|1. Log on as an administrator.
You must belong to the Administrators group, or have the privileges assigned to the Administrators group.
or run the program:
where "install_root" is the name of your installation folder which is, by default:
The Dassault Systemes Software Management dialog box is displayed, and the General tab is open.3. Click the Service Pack Management tab.
If no service packs are installed, the tab will inform you that no service packs are installed.
However, if a service pack is detected, the tab will inform you exactly what you can do.
For example, the following tab informs you that "Service Pack 1" has been installed after a GA installation.
Depending on the results of your validation, you may decide to commit the service pack, or roll back to the previous level.
4. Click the Commit button to commit the service pack, or the Rollback button to uninstall the service pack and restore the previous level.
Keep the following rules in mind when committing and rolling back service packs:
|1. Logon as root.
2. Enter the command:
where "OS" is:
The Dassault Systemes Software Management dialog box is displayed, and the General tab is open.
3. Click the Service Pack Management tab, and proceed as explained for Windows (see above).
The same commit and rollback rules apply on UNIX.
