Dell PowerStore T model Software Upgrade Guide

Automatic downloads of upgrade packages

For systems with Support Connectivity enabled, update packages can be automatically downloaded to the system when they become available on Support. The update packages are securely transferred to your system through the Support Connectivity secure tunnel. Automatic downloads apply to software update packages, drive firmware update packages, applicable Language packs, and compatible Health Check packages. This feature prevents the need for you to manually search for and download the latest upgrade packages from Support.

When a newer compatible package becomes available for each update package type (PowerStoreOS, Health Check package, Language pack, and drive firmware), the latest automatically downloaded package overwrites any older packages that were previously ready for installation under Software Packages on the Upgrades page. You receive an alert notification in PowerStore Manager when a new upgrade package is available on your system.

To enable automatic downloads, select the Settings icon, and then select Upgrades in the Cluster section. Enable automatic downloads. When Support Connectivity has not been configured, the status is shown as Automatic download is disabled.

NOTE:Automatic download does not install any update packages on your system--it downloads them from Support to your system to be installed manually. You must select a specific downloaded package, and then select the Upgrade button to install it.
