Another gotcha you might run into when you try to install vCAC 5.2 Hotfix 5 … When you try to install the hotfix on a repo server that only accepts HTTPS/SSL connections you might encounter the following error:
<div id="header"> <h1>Server Error in Application "DEFAULT WEB SITE/REPOSITORY"</h1> </div> <div id="server_version"> Internet Information Services 7.5</div> <div id="content"> <div class="content-container"> <fieldset><legend>Error Summary</legend> <h2>HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden</h2> <h3>The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).</h3> </fieldset> </div> <div class="content-container">
This is because somehow the installer only tries to access the repo via HTTP. In this case you stop the installer, go to IIS Admin and de-select the ‘Require SSL’ option on the repository web site. After that you can relaunch the Hotfix 5 and it should complete just fine. After finishing with that installation you should re-enable the ‘Require SSL’ option.
