You need to use the "patch" command to update the Messaging Gateway to resolve an issue. You would like more information on the "patch" command.


Here are a list of tasks the patch command can help do, and what commands are used to perform those tasks.

Note: The patch command is a command line utility, you must first login to command line console (locally or through SSH) with the default admin account.

  • To list patches available for this SMG version:
    • Run command "patch list"

  • To examine the release note for a patch:
    • Run command "patch -p <SMG_VERSION> notes"
    • (Where <SMG_VERSION> is replaced with the version and patch version of SMG i.e. 10.6.3-267)

  • To download patch:
    • Run command "patch -p <SMG_VERSION> download"

  • To execute pre-update checks:
