trigger/configure image updates by policy
Last modified: 2015-11-23 17:20:32 CET
Update rollouts of new images currently are configured per UCC object in LDAP. To trigger an update for many clients the "multi edit" mode can be used, but is slow for large amounts.
An alternative would be to configure this based on policies.

I tried to configure the image for 1000 UCC clients on UCS 3.2 and UCC 1.0 and the update was finished in a few seconds.
In larger environments I suggest to separate the UCC clients depending on their use cases in sub containers and to register these containers as standard containers in the UMC. This allows easy selection of a sub group of systems.
A configuration of the images based on UMC policies would be fairly difficult to implement since we would need policy evaluation in the initrd.
