Local deployment using CLI noninteractive mode

You can deploy a package or packages to a directory on the local system using the command-line properties defined in the XML package.

The following prerequisites are required to complete this task.
  1. From the CLI, run UpdateXpress System Pack Installer using the update command using the options to specify the location on the file system to search for the update packages and the option to apply the updates to the local system in noninteractive mode.
    C:\uxsp> lnvgy_utl_uxspi_10.6_winsrvr_32-64.exe update --local=C:\updates -u
  2. You can view the status on standard output stdout, as the application reads all of the UpdateXpress System Pack XML files in the specified directory to determine which UpdateXpress System Pack is applicable to the system.
    UpdateXpress System Pack Installer builds an internal catalog of the available updates as specified by the XML file.

    UpdateXpress System Pack Installer performs the following tasks:

    1. Gathers the system inventory, providing status.
    2. Compares the inventory with the update catalog and determines a recommendation of updates to apply.
    3. Provides status while it proceeds to sequentially run each applicable update on the local system.
    4. Exits with a return code designating whether the updates were successful or not.
    5. Logs status to the system logs during this operation.
    The following list provides possible error conditions that can occur.
    • If the operating system is not supported, a message is displayed at the beginning of the UpdateXpress System Pack Installer program stating that you cannot deploy updates. UpdateXpress System Pack Installer exits with an unsuccessful return code.
    • If no UpdateXpress System Pack XML file can be found in the specified directory, and it is supported by the local system machine type and operating system, a message similar to the following is displayed:
      Cannot find UpdateXpress System Pack XML file for this machine type 
      and operating system.
      Note: If the machine type or operating system is not supported by a UXSP, it is still be possible to run updates by specifying Individual Updates. To specify Individual Update, specify the --latest or -L argument.
    • If an individual update package has an error during deployment, UpdateXpress System Pack Installer continues with the next update, and then sets the return code for the appropriate time when UpdateXpress System Pack Installer program exits.
