Ubuntu Landscape - client updates

Asked by Laci D

When Ubuntu Landscape shows that a client server has available updates:

- from what repository is it checked? One that I can configure on the Landscape server itself or the one specified on "client-server $ /etc/apt/sources.list" ?
- same question for actually installing an update; is it installed from a deb repo configured on the Landscape server or "client-server $ /etc/apt/sources.list" ?
- if I send out an update of a service package (snmpd, ntpd, ssh, etc) or a dependency of the service (lib*) does the service on the client-server gets restarted automatically all the time or just in some case?

Packages are stored in repositories. A repository is simply a designated location that stores packages. You can manage Landscape repositories only via the Landscape API.
Hope this documentation helps.

Am I understanding this right, I can create an Ubuntu repository on my Landscape server and use that to push out patches, updates?

Correct, for your other servers; and or workstations.
Within the profiles you can update from the Ubuntu repository any required or critical updates.

Can you help with this problem?
