Dependency Information

Hotfix dependency: Before you install AEM 6.2 SP1, install the folllowing hotfix:

  • adobe/cq620/hotfix:cq-6.2.0-hotfix-12785:7.0

GA content package dependencies: The following content packages available in AEM 6.2 GA release are required for the automatic installation of AEM 6.2 SP1 through the ../crx-quickstart/install folder. The packages do not raise any conflicts if you install AEM 6.2 SP1 through Package Manager.

Install the Service Pack

Setup requirements

Caution

For customers with Feature Packs installed on AEM 6.2. Optional Feature Packs provided by Adobe have dependencies on the release version and service pack. If you have any Feature Pack installed, please contact the AEM Customer Care team to validate the compatibility of those feature packs with this service pack for AEM 6.2.

  • AEM 6.2 Service Pack 1 requires AEM 6.2. Please visit upgrade documentation for detailed instructions. 
  • The Service Pack download is available on Adobe Package Share, which you can access directly from the AEM 6.2 instance.
  • On a deployment with MongoDB and multiple instances, the SP1 only has to be installed on one of the Author instances using the Package Manager.
  • Before installing the service pack, ensure to:
    1. Have a snapshot or fresh backup of your AEM instance. Uninstalling the SP1 package is not supported.
    2. Install Hotfix 12785 because AEM 6.2 SP1 has a pre-installation dependency on it. Installing Hotfix 12785 will result in high CPU utilization, Adobe recommends restarting the instance to free up system resources before installing AEM 6.2 SP1.

Note

Do not restart the AEM instance immediately after the dialog prompts you to restart it after the hotfix is installed. Wait untill the error.log to stabilize and the following entry to appear in the file, which confirm a successful installation: 

*INFO* [OsgiInstallerImpl] org.apache.sling.audit.osgi.installer Uninstalled bundle updater.cq-6.2.0-hotfix-12785 from resource TaskResource(url=jcrinstall:/libs/system/cq-6.2.0-hotfix-12785-7.0/install/1/updater.cq-6.2.0-hotfix-12785-1.0.0.jar, entity=bundle:updater.cq-6.2.0-hotfix-12785, state=UNINSTALL, attributes=[Bundle-SymbolicName=updater.cq-6.2.0-hotfix-12785, Bundle-Version=1.0, org.apache.sling.installer.api.tasks.ResourceTransformer])

  • Restart the instance before installation. While that is only needed when the instance is still in update mode (and this is the case when the instance was just updated from an earlier version), it's generally recommended if the instance was running for longer period of time.
  • The fix for CQ-80782 changes the ACLs for personalization-service user from jcr:ModifyProperties to rep:write for the path /content. However, because the acHandlingof package cq-content where the current service user resides, is merge_preserve, these ACLs aren't updated when AEM 6.2 SP1 is installed. Therefore, you should manually change the ACLs of the service user, personalization-service, from jcr:ModifyProperties to rep:write for the path /content through Crxde. If the ACLs are issing there will be conflicts that prevent the rollout from being completed successfully and the following error occcurs:
    ERROR (com/day/cq/personalization/rolloutcompleteevent)] com.day.cq.personalization.impl.TeaserResourceEventHandler Unable to remove rollout lock marker at /content/geometrixx-outdoors/hp/lc2/rolloutlock.

Install the Service Pack via Package Share

Perform the following steps to install the Service Pack on an existing AEM 6.2 instance:

  1. Login to Package Share within AEM or directly from your browser and download the Service Pack 1 package
    (search for "AEM-6.2-Service-Pack-1" to find it)
  2. Install the downloaded package using Package Manager.

Note

The best way to monitor the installation process is to tail the error.log. Proceed to validate the installation after a message similar to the following is logged in the error.log file:

*INFO* [OsgiInstallerImpl] org.apache.sling.audit.osgi.installer Uninstalled bundle updater.aem-service-pkg from resource TaskResource(url=jcrinstall:/libs/system/aem-service-pkg-6.2.SP1/install/1/updater.aem-service-pkg-1.0.0.jar, entity=bundle:updater.aem-service-pkg, state=UNINSTALL, attributes=[Bundle-SymbolicName=updater.aem-service-pkg, Bundle-Version=1.0, org.apache.sling.installer.api.tasks.ResourceTransformer])

Automatic installation

There are two ways to automatically install SP1 into a running instance:

A. Place the package into ../crx-quickstart/install folder while the server is running. The package gets installed automatically. Ensure that hotfix 12785 is already installed before you perform this step.

B. Use the HTTP API from Package Manager – make sure you use cmd=install&recursive=true – so the nested package are installed.

Note

With AEM 6.2 SP1, including the service pack with the initial installation is not supported.

Validate installation

  1. The Product Information page (/system/console/productinfo) should now show the updated version string "Adobe Experience Manager, Version 6.2.0.SP1" under Installed Products.
  2. All OSGI bundles are either ACTIVE or FRAGMENT in the OSGI Console (Use Web Console: /system/console/bundles).
  3. The OSGI bundle org.apache.jackrabbit.oak-core is on version 1.4.6 or higher (Use Web Console: /system/console/bundles).

To determine the certified platform for running with this release of AEM Sites and Assets, see Technical Requirements.

Install AEM Forms add-on package

Install AEM Forms add-on

Note

Skip if you are not using AEM Forms. Fixes in AEM Forms are delivered through a separate add-on package.

  1. Ensure that you have installed the AEM Service Pack. 

  2. Download the corresponding Forms add-on package listed at AEM Forms releases for your operating system.

  3. Install the Forms add-on package as described in Installing AEM forms add-on packages.

Install AEM Forms JEE installer

Note

Skip if you are not using AEM Forms on JEE. Fixes in AEM Forms JEE are delivered through a separate installer.

For information about installing the cumulative installer for AEM Forms JEE and post-deployment configuration, see the release notes for patch 0002.

Uber Jar

The Uber Jar for AEM 6.2 SP1 is available in the Adobe Public Maven repository. To use Uber Jar in a Maven project, include the following dependency in your project POM:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.adobe.aem</groupId>
    <artifactId>uber-jar</artifactId>
    <version>6.2.0-SP1</version>
    <classifier>apis</classifier>
    <scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>
        

Code samples are intended for illustration purposes only.

Known Issues

Here's a list of known issues added by the Service Pack:

  1. OmniSearch: The View all links (for AEM Assets, Sites, and so on) in the Omnisearch results, don't work. To view all assets, first navigate to the Assets console and then search for the particular string. Similarly, if you want to search in Sites, go to the Sites console and search there. Another workaround is to manually add location tags (for example Sites, Assets) before searching.
  2. AEM Forms: Some Correspondence Management bundles remain in install state after installing the AEM Forms add-on package. To resolve the issue, reinstall the add-on package.
  3. Transient errors: The following transient errors may occur when you install AEM 6.2 SP1. However, no resolution is required for these errors because they do not impact your AEM instance, as such, and go away after SP1 is installed -
