To ensure that the distribution of software is not 'fitness administration' (ie valuable employees running from PC to PC), a client PC must independently recognize that new software packages or updates are available for it, and install them. These requirements are implemented with opsi with the opsi client agent: the opsi client agent must be installed once on the client PC. Supported as clients are the current Windows versions (Windows 7 - 10 and Server 2008 R2 - 2016) as well as Linux clients from different distributions.
With the automatic software deployment opsi distribute:
- Standard software packages
- Software updates
- Software Configurations
- Microsoft Hotfixes
- Administrative scripts
