We’ve added more videos to BladeLogic’s Automation Academy.
Setting up a Red Hat Patch Catalog shows how to use BladeLogic to create a patch catalog for a Red Hat Linux system. It also explains how to set up a smart group that automatically selects a subset of the patches in a patch catalog. Setting up patch catalogs and patch catalog smart groups are fundamental activities when using BladeLogic for patching. Information in the video parallels the material presented in this topic: Walkthrough: Setting up and managing a patch catalog for Linux.
Analyzing Linux Patches demonstrates how to use BladeLogic to analyze Red Hat Linux systems to see if there are systems that require patches and updates. BladeLogic can automate the process of building and maintaining a patch repository, analyzing target servers, and, if necessary, packaging and deploying patches. Information in the video parallels the material presented in this topic: Walkthrough: Basic Red Hat Linux patch analysis.
Patch Remediation shows the process of using BladeLogic to automate the deployment of missing patches and updates. The video demonstrates how to remediate missing patches on Microsoft Windows systems, but the process is essentially the same for all operating systems. Information in the video parallels the material presented in this topic: Walkthrough: Basic patch remediation.
