Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Configuring automatic purging of downloaded system update files

To apply system updates and to perform remote tasks on target devices, OpenManage Essentials might download the appropriate BIOS, firmware, driver, and application files. By default, the downloaded files are saved in the <install location>\Essentials\System Update folder. You can configure OpenManage Essentials to automatically purge some of the downloaded files if the downloads folder ( <install location>\Essentials\System Update ) reaches a defined size limit.
  • NOTE: By default, the purging of downloaded files is disabled.

To configure automatic purging of downloaded files:

  1. Click Settings > Purge Download Settings . The Purge Download Settings page is displayed.
  2. Select Enable purging of downloaded files to allow the automatic purging of the downloaded files using the default settings.
  3. If required, set the size limit of the downloads folder based on your preference.
    • NOTE: Purging of the downloaded files is initiated when the downloads folder reaches the defined size limit.
  4. If required, set the approximate size of the downloaded files to be purged based on your preference.
    • NOTE: Files in the downloads folder are purged until the total size of the purged files reaches or exceeds the approximate size that you have defined.
  5. Click Apply.
