Running Altiris Patch Installation from command line or remotely
Created: 24 Apr 2012 | 1 comment
I've inherited support of an Altiris 6.1 patch distirbution solution. Where can I get documentation/training on the features? I'm specifically interested in executing from a command line and/or batch file on the client machines to:
- Check for OS patches that are ready to install but have not been installed yet
- Install the OS patches
- ALWAYS restart the computer when the OS patch installations are complete (If I can just figure out when they are completed I can handle the restart command through Windows).
- If possible I would really like to be able to run a batch routine on one machine that executes the commands above remotely on another machine. My understanding is that there are remote execution commands but I have no idea what they are or how they work.
