Configuring Automatic Update Installations for Laptop Clients

You can set up a schedule in the CommCell Console to install updates automatically on your laptop clients. Installing updates ensures that the software is up-to-date on the laptops.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand the Client Computer Groups node.
  2. Right-click the Laptop Clients group, and then click All Tasks > Add/Remove SoftwareUpdate Software.
  3. Click the Job Initiation tab and make the following selections:
    1. Click Schedule, and then click Configure.

      The Schedule Details dialog box appears.

    2. In the Schedule Name box, specify a name for automatic updates schedule.
    3. Click Automatic.
    4. Under Job Interval, we recommend that you enter the following values:
      • In the Detect file or log activity every box, enter 504 hours (3 weeks).
      • In the Run the backup every box, enter 672 hours (4 weeks).


        • Based on the Job Interval values, the maintenance releases are installed automatically when the laptop comes online. When you configure the Run the backup every xx hours setting, the software checks for new maintenance release every xx hours, and installs the new maintenance release irrespective of any automatic schedule configuration rules.
        • The value you specify in the Detect file or log activity every box must be lesser than the value you specify in the Run the backup every box.
    5. Click OK.
