Product: NFA (current releases up to 9.2)
After installing Java 1.6 Update 41 you will want to make sure that it does not get automatically updated. To turn off the updating feature please see the following:
Control Panel > Programs > Java > Advanced > JRE Auto-Download > Never Auto-Download
-32bit Windows (NFA 9.1.3):
Control Panel > Java > Update > uncheck ‘Check for Updates Automatically’
Control Panel > Java > Advanced > JRE Auto-Download > Never Auto-Download
Update /etc/yum.conf with an exclude statement similar to the following at the end of the main section
Nice tip, anything other than Java 1.6 update 41 has been known to cause problems in NFA.
You can also create a Windows registry file (i.e. java-autoupdate-disable.reg) containing the following, which will disable autoupdate for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy] "EnableAutoUpdateCheck"=dword:00000000 "EnableJavaUpdate"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy] "EnableAutoUpdateCheck"=dword:00000000 "EnableJavaUpdate"=dword:00000000
Really? We are using the newest version of java (as I know it is supported by CA).
Yes, you can run into issues if you are not using the prescribed version as defined in the product release notes.
