Use the available provisioning interfaces to manage the client platform.
If the Client Management server or the Portal server are used to manage the platform, most software distribution tasks are already handled. If another management system is used to manage the client platform, it must use the available provisioning interfaces to effect changes to the system. There are primarily three options for using the provisioning interfaces:
- Directly update the provisioning manifest and related properties, and restart the platform.
- Directly call the Provisioning Application to perform changes to the platform.
- Use Provisioning APIs from within the platform to perform changes to the platform.
These methods provide access to the provisioning system that is part of the platform to ensure that features and plug-ins are installed and enabled correctly.
The Eclipse standaloneUpdate
command is disabled in Lotus® Expeditor 6.2. It is recommended that you use provisioning interfaces to manage the platform.
