Symptoms

The Dell Command | Update Catalog automates the patch process of system updates for Dell client systems in a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager environment. The catalog file contains detailed information to determine which updates are required for Dell client systems, and how to apply them. It can be used in conjunction with the software update management functionality of Microsoft ConfigMgr (and update deployment process in SCE) to provide automated BIOS, firmware, driver, and Dell application updates.

The whitepaper on integrating with SCCM and SCUP is available End-to-End Deployment of Updates

Note: The OpenManage Inventory Agent (DSIA) is not posted to the Dell Support site anymore. You can find the current download link in the catalog, or here is the download for the 2.7.0.2 version.

Cause

The Dell Business Client Update Catalog supports the V3 format catalog, within SCCM 1910 and onwards, by allowing two levels of category filters for subscriptions. Users can search for updates based on both Dell Product and model type within their environment.

This enhanced feature provides a more streamlined solution to synchronize the Dell Update Catalog helping to reduce time spent for deployment preparation and speeding up the overall update process.

Prerequisites:

  • MEMCM – 1910 of Configuration Manager Current Branch and the following with all the latest patches installed.
  • Subscription to Dell Business Client Update Catalog.

Resolution

The Dell Business Client catalog is backward compatible with earlier versions of the MEMCM. However, category filters are not available to the existing updates stored in the database or to versions earlier to MEMCM (1910).

Note: MEMCM users must re-subscribe to the Dell Business Client Update Catalog to utilize the enhanced category filters supported by Dell.
