To generate the correct patch report for the Storage Foundation and High Availability products that are installed on the managed hosts, Veritas Operations Manager requires the latest information on the patches for these products. Symantec updates the latest information on the patches on the Symantec Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) Web site as a script file. Management Server requires HTTPS connectivity with the SORT server for downloading this information.
The Veritas Operations Manager console provides you with various methods to update the patch information script files from the SORT Web site. You can use any one of the following methods to update the patch information on Management Server:
Download a script file manually from Management Server when Management Server is not continuously connected to the Internet, or you cannot set up a proxy server. You must run the file on a Windows system that is connected to the Internet to extract a text file that contains the latest information on the patches, and upload the extracted text file to Management Server.
