ZENworks Configuration Management lets you use subscriptions to replicate content from NU, RCE, RHN, YUM or RPM-MD (authenticated and unauthenticated), ZENworks Linux Management, and Static repositories.
Subscriptions help you to obtain most of the software you want to distribute to managed devices. You can create subscriptions to:
Select the targets for which to replicate the content and create bundles.
Replicate content and create Linux bundles to deploy the software to managed devices.
Replicate content and create Linux Dependency bundles to make the software packages available to the managed devices to resolve package dependencies.
Download the source RPMs from remote repositories and create monolithic Linux bundles.
Replicate patches from remote update repositories to create Patch bundles. If you want to replicate only the patches of a selected category, you can use category-based filters.
This section provides information about the various subscription types and the different subscription settings.
