Update Manager Question...

Jump to solution

Ok, this is probably going to be a really simple question (I hope). I just upgraded from 3.0.1 to 3.5 and want to start using Update Manager. I did a scan for updates (after fixing the metadata problem), but now I am trying to figure out how to actually "update" my hosts. I tried looking for some sort of manual but couldn't find anything. Can someone point me in the right direction or give me a brief explanation how I actually update the hosts?

I did install the plugin, and have the little Update Manager tab and can see the baselines and the Critical and Non-Critical updates. But can't figure out how to apply them.

Thanks!

The short version from where you are now:

Click a host, select the Update Manager tab, attach a baseline, right click the host, select Scan for Updates, right click the host and select Remediate if updates are needed.
