The best address is https://www.hp.com/go/swa, but thanks for the recommendation!

Re: Security Patch Apply

Shalom,

There was a tool called security patch check, though it may have been rolled into SWA.

An often unknown element here is security patch installation is a contractual requirement of all HP Support agreements.

Re: Security Patch Apply

security_patch_check was obsoleted on 11/1/2008. It is still delivered with SWA, but will now convert into a call to SWA itself.

Older versions of SPC should be able to get data updates now, but this will be shut off at some future point without warning.

Re: Security Patch Apply

Shalom,

swa "issue", "detail", and "html" reports, swa-report(1m).

whence swa-report

I think there should be a man page.

When it refers to html, swa can issue reports that might be visible to a web browser, if installed and told to open the right file.

That will provide you additional detail on what you need to install.

Re: Security Patch Apply

The basic command is "swa report". There is a man page (man swa-report) and built-in help (start with "swa -?").

There is also an admin guide that explains things in the best detail. It is available from https://www.hp.com/go/swa via the "Additional Information" button.
