Hi all.

 

Any one who can explain how the Install Windows Updates Workflow works?

 

I have a MediaAgent which does not have internet access or access to any other windows update service, can I use the workflow to update this MediaAgent with windows updates, or does it need to have access to the internet to get this workflow to work?

 

Thanks

-Anders

Anders,

You will need internet connection as the workflow will search and download the Microsoft updates that are needed. Here is the documentation that explains how the workflow works.

Hi Ed.

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Just to clarify. So its not enough that the CommServe has access to the internet, and therefor  are able to download the updates and then send the updates to the MediaAgent via Commvault communication, the MediaAgent it self also needs internet access?

Anders,

The updates are not downloaded to the commserve and then pushed to the media agent. The workflow executes the script on the client (Media agent in this case) which will download the updates directly to the client, thus it will need access to internet.
