Support Patch Installation from an Image
You can download support patches from Empower into an image and then use that image to install support patches on one or more machines. You might use this method in these cases:
*The machines that host the product installations on which you want to install support patches cannot go outside your corporate firewall (that is, cannot connect to Empower).
*You want to install some or all of the same support patches on multiple machines, and want to avoid the time required to download from Empower.
You create an image by running Update Manager, connecting to Empower, and selecting the support patches to download into the image. Update Manager does not install any support patches on the local machine. You can include support patches for any operating system in the image; when you install from the image, only the support patches that are appropriate for the target system will be available for installation.
Images do not contain installation-specific options such as product connection values. When you install from an image, you provide the installation-specific options that are appropriate for the machine on which you are installing. In addition, the product installations into which you install do not have to be identical, so you can install only those support patches from the image that are appropriate for each installation. When additional support patches become available on Empower, you can add them to existing images.
Update Manager saves images as zip files.
