Gather the files to local Storage#

On Linux, in any any directory you have permissions, run the following commands:
wget -r -nH -np http://cdn.novell.com/cached/designer/updatesite4_0_2/
wget -r -nH -np http://cdn.novell.com/cached/designer/packages/idm/updatesite1_0_0/
wget -r -nH -np http://cdn.novell.com/cached/designer/packages/idm/updatesite2_0_0/

Then if desired, generate an ISO image:

genisoimage -V designer402au4a -J -r ./designer402au4a.iso ./cached/designer

Burn the iso or copy the directories over to your VM host server or copy the files to your Designer server.

Open Designer, perform the following steps:

  • Click on Window > Preferences
  • Expand "Novell", select "Identity Manager", click on updates
  • Since it is an offline machine change it to "Do not check for updates", uncheck all checkboxes, change the URL to:
file:///<path_to_files>/updatesite4_0_2
example (Linux, mounted iso):
file:///media/designer402au4a/updatesite4_0_2
  • Click "Apply"
  • Under "Novell" Expand "Package Manager" Click on "Online Updates"
  • Since it is an offline machine change it to "Do not check for updates", uncheck all checkboxes
  • Click the + sign, on the prompt fill the fields with:
Vendor: Offline 1
URL: file:///<path_to_files>/packages/idm/updatesite1_0_0
example (Linux, mounted iso):
file:///media/designer402au4a/packages/idm/updatesite1_0_0
  • Click the + sign, on the prompt fill the fields with:
Vendor: Offline 2
URL: file:///<path_to_files>/packages/idm/updatesite2_0_0
example (Linux, mounted iso):
file:///media/designer402au4a/packages/idm/updatesite2_0_0
  • Make sure both "Offline 1" and "Offline 2" have their checkbox checked. Hit Apply
  • Click "Ok"
  • Go to "Help" > "Check for Designer updates"
  • Accept and update Designer
  • After the restart go to "Help" > "Check for package updates"
  • Select the top checkbox (meaning all packages), accept and update.
  • Let Designer restart one last time.
