Distributing Installations and Patches

Before you can distribute an EXTRA! X-treme installation or patch to users, you must create a distribution. A distribution contains information about the installation or patch, such as the name of the installer file or files, the product version, the access code, and whether a patch will be automatically downloaded to the user.

To distribute installations, patches, or executables
  1. Run MCS.

    This procedure assumes that you've already configured MCS. For details, see the Setting Up Centralized Management section.

  2. In the MCS left pane, point to Products and then click EXTRA! X-treme.

  3. Under EXTRA! X-treme, click Distribution Manager.

  4. On the Distributions page, click the New Distribution link.

  5. Complete the wizard screens by choosing the files to add and providing other information.

    For details about any of the fields in the wizard choose the Help link in the upper-right corner of the page.
