All,

There are a few post 0.8.6b patches that should be considered critical. The patches address the following bugs:

1) Saving User Graph Settings from User Management Broke
2) Recache Causes Poller to Hang and RRD Files to Stop Updating
3) Database Connectivity Errors

http://www.cacti.net/downloads/patches/0.8.6b

There are also seveal updates to CACTID since's it's 0.8.6b release. These are available via CVS for now.

Hi Larry,

I applied all the patches ... the warning message from the poller is gone.



I still have the graph problem ...

Message is (using the cpu utilization of my only device):

RRDTool Says:

Warning: popen(c:\rrdtool\rrdtool.exe graph - --imgformat=PNG --start=-86400 --end=-300 --title="HARMNI-CRE-CR B651 - CPU Usage" --rigid --base=1000 --height=120 --width=500 --alt-autoscale-max --lower-limit=0 --vertical-label="percent" DEF:a="E\:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\cacti/rra/harmnicrecr_b651_5min_cpu_8.rrd":5min_cpu:AVERAGE AREA:a#FF0000:"CPU Usage" GPRINT:a:LAST:"Current\:%8.0lf" GPRINT:a:AVERAGE:"Average\:%8.0lf" GPRINT:a:MAX:"Maximum\:%8.0lf" 2>&1,rb): No error in E:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\cacti\lib\rrd.php on line 88

I believe Willie indicated that this is an Authentication problem with Windows Server 2003. He provided a workaround. I think if you search the site via Google or via the search above, you can find some help on fixing.

Simply download the patches from the patches directory and apply in the correct directories. Most go into lib, others go into the root. There may be 1 file that goes into include. Edit the files to verify.

Sounds about right. It's easier just to know where the files go and to replace them though in my mind.

then i have to replace with the original and reboot the system

i am not sure, but do I have to reboot the system every time i make changes? its their any better option available?

I've got the files downloaded into the directories they're supposed to be downloaded to, but how do you execute them to apply the patch??

If you download the files into the correct directories, then all is done.

We just have to replace the old *.php with the new ones ?

Is the .patch files are defined to work with 'patch' command under linux ?

Yes. Provided you have not customized, the patch command will work fine.
