    Another option that I have found useful for learning of new updates
    since almost all of my R720 and R730 are identically configured is
    to use Dell Repository Manager.<br>
    <br>
    I connect to one of my iDRAC's to determine my starting baseline
    that I use to create my Repository.<br>
    Once I setup my initial Repository of what is updateable in my
    systems I never touch it again unless I add a new adapter.<br>
    Then I use the Schedule Repository Search option to search on a
    regular basis (I have it set for once a week).<br>
    If a new update is found to one in my Repository, I get an email
    notification and that DUP is put into my Repository and the old one
    is placed in an Archive if I need to get to it.<br>
    The service looks to be reading the content from the Drivers and
    Download page.<br>
    That way when I am ready to do my maintenance on my data center I
    know I have the latest as of that date.<br>
    I have been using this method to keep my repository fresh for a
    couple of years.<br>
    <br>
    I have been using Repository Manager for a few years, it looks like
    the catalog cadence is now twice a month so it is never very far off
    what is available on the Drivers and Download page.  Yes Repository
    Manager is a Windows application but I have found it is useful
    enough and it can run on a Laptop so I just keep an old Laptop
    around.  Mostly my team is on Chromebooks.  But that is another
    story.<br>
    <br>
    Looking at the Linux Repository it seems that it is now on a Monthly
    cadence where before it was on a quarterly cadence.<br>
