Installing the Policy Enforcer 17.1R2 Software Patch

A Policy Enforcer 17.1R2 software patch is available to address some ClearPass issues and resolves the following two problem reports:

  • The Clearpass connector does not block infected hosts after upgrading to Policy Enforcer 17.1R2. [1314308]
  • After upgrading to Policy Enforcer 17.1R2 and using the third-party switch as a connector, editing the Connector page may cause the blocking infected host feature to no longer work. [1311544]

Note: You must have Security Director 17.1R2 and Policy Enforcer 17.1R2.3 already installed prior to installing this software patch.

To install the Policy Enforcer 17.1R2 software patch:

  1. Download the Policy_Enforcer-17.1R2-16_PE_patch.x86_64.rpm file from
  2. On your Policy Enforcer virtual appliance, change directory to where you downloaded the RPM bundle and install it using the following command:
    [root@hostname~]# rpm -Uvh filename.rpm

    For example:

    [root@hostname~]# rpm -Uvh Policy_Enforcer-17.1R2-16_PE_patch.x86_64.rpm

    It may take a few minutes to install the software patch. Until the installation completes and services are restarted, do not make any Policy Enforcer-related changes within Security Director. Once installed, the Policy Enforcer screens within Security Director and any schema changes are updated. The configuration settings you used when you deployed the Policy Enforcer VM are retained.
