Files Without an Extension are Sometimes Missed by Prism Package Editor

New Boundary Support
Prism Suite

The information in the article applies to Prism Deploy Packager 10.5.0.x. The Prism Deploy Packager is included in Prism Deploy, Prism Suite and Policy Commander.

Problem: Files that do not have an extension (for example, hosts file, some Java app files) are not captured by the Prism Editor when taking a picture or finding changes.


Resolution: Make a correction in the rules.ini file on the system where the Prism Editor is installed (wherever you create packages). A section of the Ignored Files section is incorrectly duplicated, and one of the entries is missing a period. The RulesINI_Correction.rtf file in the Article Attachments section below contains both the incorrect syntax and the corrected syntax. The corrections are not posted in this article because of formatting and scrolling issues that may occur in some browsers.


You must close and reopen the Editor after making the change to rules.ini in order for the change to be recognized.  This issue will be corrected in the next release of Prism Suite, Prism Deploy and Prism Packager.
