    Automated patch remediation over WAN and repeaters

    Argyris Spinos



      Following on this thread (https://communities.bmc.com/thread/77873?tstart=0) I wanted to further understand the effectiveness of repeaters during remediation of patch analysis jobs.


      If I understand correctly during patch analysis, BSA analyses each server one by one and creates a package with missing updates for each server. In this sense one can still make use of the ‘stage indirect (using repeaters)’ option but wouldn’t benefit from it since a separate package for each server would still traverse the WAN to get copied to the repeater.


      What I would like to ask is if BSA during analysis finds two servers with the exact same needs it terms of patches, will it bundle them together in a single remediation package or it will still create a separate package for each one.


      Many thanks
