About Deployment Templates

When deploying patches to a machine, Security Controls allows you to specify a number of different options such as whether to notify logged on users about a pending deployment, whether the target should be restarted after deployment, whether reports should be sent, and much more.

Security Controls provides three predefined deployment templates:

The Agent Standard deployment template is designed to be used with agents. It will perform a post-patch deployment reboot only when needed.

The Standard deployment template is designed to be used with agentless deployments initiated by the console. It will always perform a post-patch deployment reboot.

The Virtual Machine Standard deployment template is designed for use with virtual machines. It will take a pre-deployment snapshot of any virtual machine that is hosted on a server, and it will delete old snapshots that are more than four days old.

If you wish to create your own unique deployment template, see Creating a Deployment Template.
