Configuring the automatic download of file updates

You can configure the update server to use a certain package of updated files.
  1. Start Command Prompt.
    Note: You must have administrator privileges or the account you use must be in the ipmupdategroup group. If you are running Command Prompt using an administrator account, make sure that you select the Run as Administrator option.
  2. Type ipmupdateserverctl freeze and press the Enter key to enter Maintenance mode.
    Note: The Maintenance mode unlocks the product path folder and you can add and remove any files contained in the product path subdirectories. The InfoPrint Manager server is also temporarily disabled.
  3. To copy all the updated files and the installation location file, create a subdirectory under <configuration_dir>\Products\<product_dir>\Windows\nn.nn.nn.nn\Files\update_set, where nn.nn.nn.nn is the version number.
    • The default configuration directory is c:\ProgramData\RICOH\InfoPrint Manager Update Server\.
    • update_set represents a folder named of your choice. You must create this folder before copying the files.

    Example: <configuration_dir>\Products\<product_dir>\Windows\nn.nn.nn.nn\Files\Update_Patch_December

  4. Copy all the updated files to the new subdirectory. You can create multiple folders, depending on how many file sets you want to update.
  5. Create a plain text file called ipmupdate.path in the new subdirectory. The ipmupdate.path file must contain only the location, on the client machine, where the new files must be copied.

    Example: c:\ProgramData\RICOH\InfoPrint Manager Update Server\Products\InfoPrint Select\Windows\nn.nn.nn.nn\Files\Update_Patch_December.

  6. Run ipmupdateserverctl unfreeze to exit the Maintenance mode.
