Download and stage multiple bulletins via script

Created: 09 Jan 2013 | 2 comments

Hi,

We are using patch 7.2 across 3 hierarchies. Is there a way to supply a text file with a list of approved bulletins into a script to download and stage the bulletins located in that text file? Otherwise, we have to go to each hierarchy and run the wizard for each bulletin/update. That's a lot of repeated work. Thanks for any help.

Hello tloenhosrt,

I have a tool here on Connect [1] that does something similar already.

I can add the feature to work from an inclusion table (which is simpler and more powerful than a file based inclusion).

Would this be okay for you?

I am currently off-net, on a retreat of some kind. I'll be back real soon, and you sure will hear from me then ;-).

I think this may work. I will test this and see how it works for us. Thanks for the link!
