The Dell EMC Repository Manager (DRM) ensures that the systems are up-to-date with the latest BIOS, driver, firmware, and software. DRM allows you to:
Create repositories of customized component(s) and updates.
Create groups of related updates for systems running the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating system .
Generate comparison reports and update baselines of custom repositories.
The customized repositories are made up of Dell EMC Update Packages (DUPs) or Non-DUPs (such as .exe, .msi, .bin or any other file formats) files. DUPs are software utilities provided to update specific software and firmware components. You can arrange these components to group the related updates together. Every repository has a catalog.xml file and it specifies the content of the repository. DRM also has catalog.xml.gz and catalog.gz files. You can import the repository content in all the three formats, however, you can export the repository content in catalog.xml format only. The file downloaded from ftp.dell.com/catalog and downloads.dell.com/catalog is digitally signed to ensure system security.
This guide describes the installation process of Dell EMC Repository Manager (DRM) on the supported versions of operating systems.
