  • Repository/Distribution server

    I am sure this has been asked and answered before. Is there a way to use a local update repository/distribution server with patch management so that individual computers do not have to download the same updates from the internet and consuming unneccessary bandwidth?

    Hello taha@emax.co.tz ,

    Yes you are correct. It is already part of our roadmap wherein ITSM PM will have the ability to download a patch and distribute it to client computers. This feature is expected to be delivered by the end of this year, 2018.
    Please tell us if you want to be part of the loop so you`ll receive an email for any important update.

    Regards,

          3rd party patch management system uses P2P file sharing mechanism which is designed to enable our agents consume less data by using caching mechanism in local network.
          The P2P caching mechanism means our agents consume less data by first checking files on devices in the local network before going to the patch portal. Since agents can also report any ongoing downloads to requests, this improvement also enables agents to save more bandwidth.

          For OS patch management part, please keep an eye on us!

          Thank you!

          This is excellent to know the system already has this ability and does it for 3rd Party programs.

                Hello rudym12 , nct,
                Unfortunately this feature isn't implemented yet. ITarian OS Patch Management works with Windows Update, therefore it is currently a long term item for OS patches.

                For 3rd party application installation and patching, local distribution will be implemented in close mid-term (between 6-12 months),

                Best regards,
                Ilgaz
