Good evening!

I try to install patch 8 of version 5.2.0.26 ACS. But i have the following issue:

ACS01/admin# acs patch install 5-2-0-26-8.tar.gpg repository Test

Patch '5-2-0-26-8' is already installed.

% Error: Failure to open / validate the patch

I have two Cisco ACS and on the second one (Role Secondary) i don't hace issues.

Im using FTP.

Hi,

As the question is still "Not Answered" I wanted to share another option we have instead of having to remove the created directory.

We can easily rename the Patch file name and wait the for the process to complete using the new filename. For example:

- If trying the following drops the error:

ACS01/admin# acs patch install 5-2-0-26-8.tar.gpg repository Test

Patch '5-2-0-26-8' is already installed.

% Error: Failure to open / validate the patch

- Rename the patch filename and try again. you can rename it to something like: patch_5-2-0-26-8.tar.gpg

ACS01/admin# acs patch install patch_5-2-0-26-8.tar.gpg repository Test

Managed to get some more details on this.

Seems like the patch installation was interrupted in the middle at the point where some intermediate diorectory was created. This makes the patch script think the patch is in fact installed when it is not

It is meant to be possible to have this "easily" fixed by having TAC remove the directory and then reinstalling
