Dell Command | Update 3.0 - Import policy via command line?

Jump to solution

With the older versions of Dell Command | Update, I was able to use dcu-cli.exe to import the policy for Command | Update.

With Dell Command | Update 3.0 for Windows 10, I can not find a way to import the policy (XML file) using a command line.  Is this still an option?

I have a few thousand machines I'd like to push this to and my goal here is to set the client for "Manual Updates Only".  I'm open to setting this another way if anyone has a suggestion.

I think I found an alternate way to set this in the registry.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\DELL\UpdateService\Clients\CommandUpdate\Preferences\Settings\Schedule

ScheduleMode = ManualUpdates

In V3, Dell Removed CLI support.  No Importing Policy or Triggering DCU from command line.  However, as you have found, you can create the settings on a test machine, export the associated registry key, then use that as your make-shift policy.   For Enterprise use, until they add CLI support to 3.X, I see no point in moving past 2.4.

You can export/import settings over the registry but you can't trigger to do the updates over the command line (usefull by deployment tools like sccm). That the reason why enterprises are still using 2.4.

Customers are waiting about 6 Months for this feature "(will be restored in future release)". It will be nice when Dell can here make a comitment about when we can have this feature back.

You used "Dell" and "commitment" in the same phrase?

How could you?
