Known Affected Releases


Description (partial)

With SSL Jabber is unable to auto-update from version 9 Jabber to 10. If the installed version is 10.5.0 and are upgrading to any later 10.5.X versions update over SSL works fine.
Without SSL auto-update works from any version to any later versions of Jabber.

Steps to Reproduce the issue.

-Use the following jabber-update.xml file hosted on the web server.
<App name="JabberWin">
  <Message><![CDATA[Dear Jabber user, Jabber 10.5.1 is now available. Please update! This new version of Cisco Jabber lets you do the following:<ul><li>P2P Desktop Sharing</li><li>Hunt-Group</li><li>Call Pickup</li><li>Group Call Pickup</li><li>Other Group Pickup</li><li>... and more</li></ul>For more information click <a target="_blank" href="">here</a>.]]></Message>

- Keep version 10 jabber .msi on auto-update server. We will upgrade from version 9 Jabber to 10.
-With exactly the same xml files, auto-update works over http no matter what is the installed client version. It's also working over https if the certificate in place on the auto-update server is a self-signed certificate.
- If the installed client is 10.5.0 and upgrading to 10.5.1, then the issue doesn't show up for a self-signed certificate or CA signed web server certificate -->
