Dell Repository Manager
Easily manage system updates with Dell Repository Manager (DRM). This DRM application gives you a searchable interface to create custom software collections called bundles, and to assemble repositories of Dell Update Packages (DUPs). A Dell Update Package (DUP) is a self-contained executable in a standard package format that updates a software element on a Dell server such as the BIOS, a device driver, firmware and other similar software updates. By creating these bundles and repositories, you can deploy multiple firmware updates at once. Dell Repository Manager also saves you time by making it easier to locate specific updates for a particular platform. It can compare differences between two repositories at both the bundle and component level, and it allows you to create deployment tools using your custom repository.
Repository Manager is available for Dell data center (Server, Storage, Networking) and Dell enterprise client products:
The Data Center version can create and manage repositories for Dell PowerEdge servers, and select EqualLogic, PowerVault and Dell Compellent storage, as well as select PowerConnect and Dell Force10 networking switches.
The Client version manages updates for Dell Latitude, Dell Precision workstation and OptiPlex client systems.
Dell Repository Manager also integrates with Dell systems management products such as Dell OpenManage Essentials console and the Dell Management Plug-in for VMware® vCenter™. It automates creation of custom repositories by reading inventory information from these consoles and creating a set of updates that is newer than what is installed.
