Server Update Utility
Dell OpenManage Server Update Utility is a dual layer DVD-based application for identifying and applying updates to your system. You can use SUU to update your Dell PowerEdge system or to view the updates available for any system supported by SUU. SUU compares the versions of components currently installed on your system with update components packaged on the Dell PowerEdge Server Update Utility DVD. SUU then displays a comparison report of the versions and provides the option of updating the components.
Content Manager ships on the Dell OpenManage Systems Build and Update Utility CD. Content Manager allows you to download Dell Update Packages (DUPs) from the official Dell support website. These packages are then kept in Custom Repositories where you can choose which PowerEdge servers and types of OS updates to store.
Content Manager also has a task to compare your custom repository to the latest downloads available from the official Dell support website.
When the Custom Repositories are created, the Server Update Utility (SUU), both GUI and CMD versions, are included in the repository. This allows you to map a network drive from your servers to the repository and update the servers from a single location knowing that it contains the latest drivers from the official Dell support site.
Note: Content Manager is no longer shipping or supported and has been replaced by Dell Repository Manager
