Dell Command | Update Version 2.0 User's Guide

Configuring General Settings

In the General Settings tab, you can modify the location to store updates, to download updates, and configure or modify Internet proxy settings.

Perform the following steps to configure the general settings:
  1. On the heading banner, click Settings. The Settings screen is displayed.
  2. Under Download File Location, click Browse to set the default location or to change the default location for storing the downloaded updates.
    • NOTE: Dell Command | Update automatically deletes the update files from this location after installing the updates.
  3. Under Update Source Location, click New to add a location for downloading the updates. If you have multiple download locations, you can prioritize these locations by clicking the up and down arrows associated with the download location entry.
  4. Under Internet Proxy, do one of the following:
    • Select Use current internet proxy settings to use the current internet proxy settings available on the system.

    • Select Custom proxy setting to configure a proxy server and port.

  5. If you select Custom Proxy Settings, and if you want to use proxy authentication, select the Use Proxy Authentication check box, and provide user name and password credentials.
  6. Click Ok to save changes or click Cancel to revert to the last saved settings and return to the Welcome screen.
  • NOTE: If an interactive execution of Dell Command | Update is running, you must close Dell Command | Update for the scheduler to check for updates after the set time. This is because only one instance of the application can be running at a time and the scheduler instance is blocked by the interactive instance.
