Novell ZENworks Patch Management 11.3


ZPM 11.3 contains a new feature called Enable DAU Caching.


In this context DAU stands for Discover Applicable Updates.

The DAU bundle brings down patch agent updates, patch signatures and triggers a patch scan to managed devices.

By default the patch scan process needs to extract the contents of the signature files and removes the extracts later again. With  Enable DAU Caching set, the patch scan process leaves behind the signature extracts which can reduce the time needed to finish the patch scan.
