Hello All, Has anyone tried to update the EPA libraries using an ADM configuration job? We want to be able to schedule this task/process using ADM.

Has anyone tried to update the EPA libraries using an ADM config job? We want to be able to schedule this task/process using ADM.

I have created a test configuration job for the Windows Libraries it copies the win_epa.tgz library file, then extracts it (tar cmd) and copies the file epaPackage.exe and another supporting .js file to the correct directory on the NS. However, there seems to be one task left that the NetScaler does when you upload the libraries via the NetScaler GUI. That is to update the pluginlist.xml file with the correct version of the libraries that have been uploaded 

/netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/pluginlist.xml

Does anyone know what post upload script/job runs on the NetScaler when you upload the EPA libraries? There must be a script/task that runs to extract the .tgz file, copy the extracted files to the correct directories and update the pluginlist.xml file with the correct version of the libraries and OpsWat.

I don't know why this configuration/update job isn't already available in ADM, it would make life so much easier :-(

The problem is we scan for generic AV products which means the libraries need to be bang upto date otherwise cloud based AV subscriptions update the version of AV on the endpoint before the EPA libraries get updated by Citrix. Then users can't logon in this scenario. We have to do many updates of the libraries once every month at least. TBH I would have thought Citrix would have a cloud based subscription service to update the EPA Libraries automatically on client based NetScalers

We want to automate the update process so we drop the new library files into a fileshare, the ADM configuration job runs once every month on a schedule. I have managed to get this working using 'SED' shell cmd line tool to update the pluginlist.xml file . We are testing it at the moment and it works.

This means that we don't have to work out of hours every month to update the ADC's libraries.
