Dell Command Update has been installed on all ARE Dell Computers.
Dell Command | Update is a stand-alone application, for commercial client computers, that provides updates for system software that is released by Dell. This application simplifies the BIOS, firmware, driver, and application update experience for Dell commercial client hardware. This application can also be used to install drivers after the operating system and network drivers are installed based on the computer identity.
This should help ARE computers stay in compliance with firmware, BIOS, and driver vulnerabilities and provide a consistent experience for the end-user. Dell Command Update is scheduled to run weekly Saturday at 12 AM on ARE systems. It will reboot the system if necessary to install updates. This schedule should work fairly well with the schedule that is set up for Windows Updates on campus.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact ARE IT.
