How do I install the ZPM Red Hat agent and receive remediation patches using a ZPM server?


Once a Novell ZPM subscription (to receive Red Hat patches) has been purchased, the Update Server will download all the patch detection signatures for Red Hat but not the remediation packages because Red Hat requires users to have a Red Hat Network Subscription to download their security patches.
Next customers will need to manually download any patches from Red Hat through their Red Hat Network Subscription. These patches can then be manually imported into the local ZPM remediation database using the Content Update Toolfound in PatchLink's Answer ID 349
Once the patches have been sucessfully imported, all remediation deployments will be supported. In some cases, the cut tool will have to be run twice in order to work.
