HP-UX download cacher

The HP-UX Download Cacher is command-line tool that is designed to automatically download and cache HP-UX patch bundles on the Windows BigFix server to facilitate the deployment of HP-UX Fixlets.

Important: Use the download cacher tool only if you are using an air-gapped environment or if the total number of packages is too large. You can also use the tool if you want to cache all the downloads for faster execution of actions. Otherwise, use the download plug-in. The preferred method of HP-UX patch caching is to register the HP-UX Download Plug-in from the Manage Download Plug-ins dashboard. For more information about registration, see Registering the HP-UX download plug-in.

The tool downloads large files and by default, stores them in the sha1 cache folder. You can also choose to store the files in a different existing directory.

You can either run the download cacher tool task from the BigFix console, or access the tool by downloading and running it manually.
