Introduction

The practice of updating ProLiant Support Packs and components using Version Control Repository Manager from a single or multiple repositories saves time and is key to standardizing software maintenance and update procedures on distributed systems.

For maximum manageability and flexibility across operating system platforms, each repository that is created should conform to the following conditions:

  • Located on a local drive with write access

  • Updated automatically by the Version Control Repository Manager

When a repository has been created, the repository must be populated with ProLiant Support Packs and components before being updated on the target HP systems. The easiest and most efficient way to update a repository is by using the Automatic Update feature of the Version Control Repository Manager. The Automatic Update feature of the Version Control Repository Manager enables you to schedule an automatic population of the repository. However, the repository can be updated in any, or combination of any, of the following ways:

  • The Automatic Update feature of the Version Control Repository Manager

  • The Upload ProLiant Support Pack feature of the Version Control Repository Manager, which enables users to easily copy ProLiant Support Packs from a SmartStart CD or other accessible media

  • Manually downloading the software into the repository from http://www.hp.com
