  • Does auto update also work when the user is not inside the company's network? i.e. over the internet? 

  • IvanDIvanD Posts: 31

    Yes, as long as the policy has been set previously (for example to install the updates automatically), the Software Updater component will fetch the updates from the 3rd party vendor's sites.

  • And what does GOLD mean in the list?

  • IvanDIvanD Posts: 31

    With Gold we identify the first version of any specific software or version (ie without any service packs on top). Its mainly used for manual exclusion purposes.
