    Download Windows Patches directly from Microsoft

    Sumesh P

      In BSA is there a way to download windows patches directly from Microsoft so that i dont have to wait for the shavlik patch release which doesnt happen for 12-16 hours after Microsoft release.


      As per some docs i referred, it seems it is possible:


      How to use BMC Server Automation for Microsoft Windows Patching [Whitepaper]

      "On the Windows Catalog panel, select Source From Vendor (Online Mode). This option downloads patches to the repository directly from a vendor's Internet site (for example, a download site maintained by Adobe)."


      However when i use the online mode it still goes to shavlik for XML download.


      Is patch download directly from just Microsoft site possible?
