XenApp 6.5 Hotfixes etc - Is there an easier way to download and install?

I have just built a new XenApp 6.5 test farm to replace our XA5 farm.

Is there an easier way to download and install the XA65 hotfixes and rollup packages?
Only way I know of is to download 1 by one and install 1 by one. Is there an update manager like with Windows?

I am Lazy........

You have a Hotfix management Console for this.

You can get a list of hotfixes via RSS syncing.

You can install them centrally using Citrix or other tools.

Doesn't the Hotfix Management console just tell me what is installed and also lets me compare what HF's are installed on each host?

Does it help you automate the process also? If so, how?

Yes, as far as I know that's the limits of the Hotfix console. I haven't seen any hotfix installations product since installation manager in Presentation Server 4.
You could leverage a 3rd party installation utility or piece something together like in this blog..

take a look to the "Citrix XenApp 6.0/6.5 update script" written by Thomas Kötzing.
this scrip can download and install XenApp updates.
Mostly i use it to download only all current updates.
it saves many time for me.
