Enterprise Server provides a set of image packaging system (IPS) tools for updating software on a deployed Enterprise Server. Typical updates include new releases of Enterprise Server, and new or revised Enterprise Server add-on components.
Update Tool is a graphical utility that you can either invoke in the Administration Console, or from the command line by using the updatetool command. A desktop Update Tool Notifier lets you know when updates are available and provides a direct means of applying the updates to your Enterprise Server.
Instructions for using the graphical versions of the Update Tool are contained in the Administration Console online help and the standalone Update Tool online help.
The pkg command is the command-line version of Update Tool.
Instructions for using the pkg command are contained in Chapter 3, Extending Enterprise Server.
