The Update Center provides automated Enterprise Server updates and easy access to additional components.
When the Update Center is enabled, it performs an automated software update. During this automated update process, the Update Center collects and transmits the following data to Sun Microsystems (or its service provider):
Unique installation ID (GUID)
Operating system information (name, version, architecture, locale)
Module download information (module name, date, time, status, download time, number of bytes downloaded)
No personally identifiable information is tracked. No personally identifiable information is associated with any other data or used for reporting purposes.
To ensure explicit agreement of the automated update, the Update Center is disabled by default. To enable the Update Center to perform periodic checks and automated updates:
Start the Update Center.
On Unix: <installdir>/updatecenter/bin/updatetool
On Windows: <installdir>\updatecenter\bin\updatetool.bat
Select the Preferences tab.
In the Update Scheduling window, change the Check for Updates drop-down box value from Never (Manual) to a desired value. For example, daily or weekly.
Specify the desired day of the week and time of the day for the update.
Select the Save button to save your changes.
The Update Center will now automatically check for Enterprise Server component updates according to the schedule specified. When an update is available, the Update Center will launch and notify you of the component available to update.
