Fixed vulnerabilities

Installation of Java 8

  1. Copy the file Nexthink-install-jdk-1.8.72.tgz to the Portal appliance via SCP or sFTP.
  2. Log in to the CLI of the Portal appliance and run the following commands:
    1. tar xvzf Nexthink-install-jdk-1.8.72.tgz
    2. sudo sh
  3. Once the installation completes, restart the Portal appliance:
    1. sudo reboot

Note that the installation process does not remove Java 1.7 from the appliance. Both Java 1.8 and Java 1.7 will coexist in the same machine, although the Portal will exclusively run on Java 1.8.
