Software Deployment Question

Deploying Dell Updates with Security Patch schedule?

08/01/2019 907 views

I've been looking for this answer but haven't found anything really clear yet.

I already have:

  • A working Security patch detect-only schedule
  • A working Security patch deploy-only schedule
  • Working Smart labels that clearly define: Windows patches, Dell drivers, Dell applications, etc.
  • A working Dell Update detect-only schedule 

Windows security patches have been going out fine and Dell Driver and Application updates are being detected just fine.

My question is: is it possible for the Dell Update deployment to be combined with my existing Security patch deploy-only schedule? I'd like users to have one deployment per week and not two.

I had hoped that I could just add my smart labels for the Dell driver updates and application updates to my security patch deploy-only schedule and they would all roll out together. That doesn't seem to be happening. Can I get it working this way or do I have to set up a separate Dell Update deploy-only schedule?

Thank you.

This not recommend, and I believe is not possible.

Dell patching uses a different module and set of tools.

In fact I would totally advise against mixing those two during the same time-frame.
