NetSUS 4.1.0 Update

New Contributor III

Sorry for the obvious but I just setup my NetSUS 4.0 appliance recently using the OVA and was curious how I go about applying the 4.1.0 update. The run file seems to be for the 4.0.0 version and I can work my way around the shell well enough I'm just not sure how to apply the zip package from Git and I did not see instructions for updating in the readme file.

Any help is greatly appreciated!



@McDonald where do you see the 4.1.0 update? I went to the NetSUS github and see nothing mention about NetSUS 4.1.0

Got an email update from JAMF about it.


Interesting hopefully they are fixing the issue where you cant login to the web interface if the hard drive gets too full.

I found the instructions here to upgrade...

Replace the step for the file to download to
Then install an unzip app (sudo apt-get install unzip)
Unzip 4.1.0 file
Run sudo ./ which will create the
Run sudo ./
You will be prompted to answer some questions during the upgrade process. After that I rebooted the NetSUS server and connected to the web page. It's a nice GUI update.

Fantastic! Thanks @rmiltenb!

For anyone else that goes through this I combined steps from the other post plus ones above as follows:

  1. sudo apt-get install unzip
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get upgrade.
  4. sudo ap-get clean (clean the cache).
  5. sudo wget
  6. Unzip
  7. sudo ./
  8. sudo ./
  9. sudo reboot now


This update is the greatest thing since the JSS. I feel like I'm on a site from this decade!

The only thing that needs to be done is update the product page which still points to the 4.0.0 version


Netsus is not taking down all the updates off el capitan.
You have to change the following file: /var/lib/reposado/preferences.plist

and add the bottom lines:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">

with this all old updates are also gone and you have more space ;)

Has anyone has issues with the SMB upload? It just hangs when I try to connect with Finder. The smb conf seems fine and prior to this update, it worked perfectly.


No problem at all, from witch version you upgraded from? (mine 3.0.2 to 4.1.0)

I upgraded from 4.0.0 to 4.1.0. It turns out I had to uninstall samba before rerunning the .run file with:
sudo apt-get autoremove samba samba-common
sudo apt-get autoremove system-config-samba
