How do you use the "snapshot" technology within DSM Explorer to automatically create software packages for deployment?
Posted on 2008-06-11
I'm deploying software and patches throughout our networks via CA Unicenter's DSM Explorer with it's Software Delivery Agent.
Currently, I'm manually creating simple software packages manually. In this method you name a new package, plug in the source file and write the procedures. (I'm only as far as putting in switches in the Parameters for the procedures)
I've read that there is a "snapshot" technology built into DSM that can automatically create software packages for you. (This would be especially usefull for the more complicated multi-step installations of software and suites)
Can anyone explain how to use this feature and advise on it's potential and limitations?
