Importing 3rd Party Application patches

Hello,

How do I acquire patches for 3rd party software, such as Adobe or Macromedia, so they show up in my Patches list in HP CAS 7.5 console?

In the Configuration tab, I see that you can only configure to acquire MS and HP patches.

Please advice,

Thanks!

Can't get there from here!

CAS Patch Manager is only designed to handle MS Security Bulletins and Service Packs.

So, for instance, you CAN use Patch Manager to manage a security bulletin affecting IE (ex: MS09-019) ...but you CAN'T use PM to update all your clients running IE6 to IE7.

You would need to go the usual route for software and deploy IE7 to clients as a package.

Hope this helps!
