Updating repository to latest version of PSP

 

Updating repository to latest version of PSP

We have multiple Servers running either W2k or W2k3
We have a Repository Manager running psp-7.40b.w2k3. If i need to update this, is it just a case of copying in the latest psp, psp-7.51.w2k3 into the repository and leaving 7.40b in there as well.
Also can the W2k machines use the w2k3 psp.

Re: Updating repository to latest version of PSP

Hi Andrew,

The practice of updating ProLiant Support Packs and components using VCRM 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:
â ¢ Located on a local drive with write access
â ¢ Updated automatically by the VCRM

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.
Although it is optional, the easiest and most
efficient way to update a repository is by using the Automatic Update feature of the VCRM. The Automatic Update feature of the VCRM 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:
â ¢ The Automatic Update feature of the VCRM
â ¢ The Upload ProLiant Support Pack feature of the VCRM, which enables users to easily copy ProLiant Support Packs from a SmartStart CD or other accessible media
â ¢ Manually downloading the software into the repository from http://www.hp.com


Hope this answers!!!!!

Re: Updating repository to latest version of PSP

Hello Andrew,

1.If i need to update this, is it just a case of copying in the latest psp, psp-7.51.w2k3 into the repository and leaving 7.40b in there as well.

Deleting Old PSP may be optional,the key is to rescan the repository and rebuild the catalog so that the new files are displayed.

2.Also can the W2k machines use the w2k3 psp.

No.
