Initiate VCA update from client via CLI

Is there a way to initiate a VCA PSP and firmware installation from the command line at the client? I have a few hundred Proliant servers (G4's thru G7's) and a smattering of Windows OS versions in different geographic locations. VCA is configured to point to a regional VCRM repository. Rather than initiate the VCA updates from SIM, I'd like to script it at the client and include it with other steps. For example, the script would download and install OS patches from WSUS, then install latest PSP and firmware from its local VCRM and reboot. I just can't find the command to initiate the VCA update.

Re: Initiate VCA update from client via CLI

With all of the changes coming down the pipe with version controlling you'll need to start thinking of scripting via HPSUM for software and firware deploymenst since that is what is employed. The VCA like SIM leverages SUM - VCA technically isn't even required any longer unless you want to set baselines and like to see the colorful status icons - soon I bet you'll see VCA gone.
