Creating a Linux Patch Deployment Configuration
A Linux patch deployment configuration defines how a patch deployment will be performed. Security Controls provides one predefined configuration named Update All. This configuration specifies that the agent will deploy all patches that were identified as missing by a patch scan. A patch group will not be used and a post-deploy reboot will not be performed.
You cannot edit the predefined configuration. If the predefined configuration is not adequate for your needs, you can create a custom configuration.
Try it yourself
1.Click New > Linux Patch > Patch Deployment Configuration.
2.In the Name box, type Sample Linux Deployment Config.
3.On the Options tab, enable the Post-deploy reboot when needed by the target patches check box.
This specifies that Security Controls will review the patches being deployed and determine whether or not a reboot is required.
4.Enable the Deploy by patch group check box and then select the Sample Linux Patch Group that you created earlier.
