LiveUpdate policy

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

Is there a 'smart' way to create LiveUpdate policies based on the clients that you have defined in all your policies?

I'm thinking about some scripting, so I don't have to insert manually 400+ clients in live update policies.

DOCUMENTATION: How can clients be added to a LiveUpdate policy using the command line? How can clients be removed from a LiveUpdate policy using the command line?

So maybe you could script this feeding in a list of clients (editted as necessary) produced by the 'normal' bpplclients command?

Thanks Andy,
It's a good starting place, but I hoped somebody already did the scripting part by not reinventing this....
ps master server is running Solaris.

bpplclients -allunique -noheader > CLIENTLIST.txt   (you can edit this for just those clients you're interested in)

cat CLIENTLIST.txt|
while read HARDWARE OS CLIENT
do
bpplclients Live_Update_Policy_Name -internal -add $CLIENT $HARDWARE $OS
done

Or are you looking for something even more "refined"? wink

Maybe looking at various LU policies based on OS or hardware?
