update manager fill update repository manualy


I have installed updatde manager on a Vmware vc 2.5 / esx 3.5

it works find I downloaded all patches, performed scans on esx and remediation . every thing is ok


the customer want to work an other way

they want to validate theire own list of updates and fill manualy the repository folder

we changed the kikstart files for all new esx to be updated when it is created

so we need to have a repository with only the authorized patchs

my first question is how can I reset the update manager repository list in database cause only deleting patchs in the repository folder does not initialise the repository list in VI

second question how can we add manually or by script new updates in the folder for them to be applied for scan and remediation?
