Remote Update

Hi all,

We have three sites connected via 1-2 MBit Links. In one rmeote site is on, in the other remote site are 2 ESX Hosts connected to the VC in the Headquarter.

Is there a way to bring updates to the remote ESX hosts via DVD (burned in headquarter) so the updates do not need to be transferred via 1 MBit connection?

I know there is a SC-command, but afaik do you need to explicitely list allpatches in the correct order - and thats not quie "user friednfly". Is there a more comfortable way?

Thank You!

Marcus

I believe Update Manager is really the only "nice way". I have done this through a T1 connection so while slow it is possible. I believe the old way does require patches to be specified in the correct order. Unless your hosts at the remote site are really our of date or you have a massive upgrade planned, I believe Update Manager can work.

Hope this helps! === If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful". ===
