How are Citrix XenApp updates / patches released?

Do i have to manually download from their site or is there a way to search from the console? Also, can we automatically download available patches?  if so, whats the preferred method. Thanks

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Signup for the e-mail alerts on the product update pages.  There is no automated update mechanism in place.  You have to manually update your servers.  Here is where it is best to have a lab to test the updates with.  It is also best, if you have no lab environment, to wait a few weeks and monitor the Citrix support forums to see what mishaps people are having.

Oh yeah, for Microsoft updates on XenApp servers, bookmark this page and don't apply MS updates until Citrix has tested them:
