HPE Smart Update Manager 8.4.0

Step 1: Download ISO onto a Centralized Network Share
Step 2: Connect to Remote Server via RDP and Copy Files

Although SMB, SFTP, FTPS, FTP, or SCP (all distinct protocols) are more efficient at file copying, those ports may not be opened for a certain protected subnets. Thus, we must use RDP redirection to copy large files over to the destination Windows host.

Run: mstsc.exe > click “Show Options” > select “Local Resources” tab > click on “More

Select the network share of local hard drive that contains the downloaded ISO > OK

Reboot when Done

It’s a good idea to perform a rescan once the computer has restarted. There may be packages that would only apply after a preceding package has been deployed. Repeat these steps as necessary.
