Recently i have applied hotfixes
to numerous servers.
One of the steps to install the hotfixes is to manually select the hotfix via the GUI and hitting submit.
My query is this - Does the GUI simply put the hotfix in the location update location? Or does it do more behind the scenes?
The reason why i'm asking is because should i have to update multiple servers in the future, it would be much quicker and easier just to place the hotfix directly in that hotfix update location and avoid the GUI altogether
Cheers in advance
Yes, you can directly copy the hotfix jar file to the updates directory to apply the hotfix.
