, 20B, and 20C are block diagrams representing examples of a method, a machine-readable storage medium encoded with instructions, and an apparatus for automatically updating an application or a driver on a client device, in accordance with one aspect of the disclosure.
The detailed description set forth below is intended as a description of various configurations of the subject technology and is not intended to represent the only configurations in which the subject technology may be practiced.
In this approach, however, the created image is configured for use on a single hardware platform only, and may not function properly if installed on a devices having a different hardware platform.
As a result, a different image may need to be created for each different hardware platform maintained by the administrator, which may result in a large number of images needing to be created.
In addition, a disk image may be a very large file, and the installation of the disk image on multiple client devices can result in the transfer of potentially very large image files to all devices.
In order not to have to create a disk image for each different hardware platform, and in order not to have to transfer a large disk image file to each client device, the administrator can instead individually install or update the software applications and/or drivers on each device.
, 19B, and 19C are block diagrams representing examples of a method, a machine-readable storage medium encoded with instructions, and an apparatus for deploying and updating applications and drivers on a client device having a write-filter, in accordance with one aspect of the disclosure.For instance, examples of methods and apparatus are provided for, among others, deploying and updating of applications and drivers on a client device having a write filter using an extensible markup language (XML) configuration file.In one aspect, an apparatus can include an update agent module of the target client device configured to obtain a first deployment extensible markup language (XML) configuration file for deploying a first application or driver at the client device, from a configuration repository having deployment XML configuration files for deploying applications and drivers on client devices and deployment XML configuration files for updating applications and drivers on the client devices.Second Illustration: According to a second illustration for installing one or more applications and/or drivers on client devices having any of various hardware platforms, an image-build device is configured to create a disk image including the applications and/or drivers for each of the various hardware platforms.
In the second illustration, the disk image includes a device driver configuration file.
However, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the subject technology may be practiced without these specific details.
