Refreshing the product catalog

The product catalog contains information about all firmware updates that are available for all devices that Lenovo XClarity Administrator supports, including chassis, servers, and Flex switches.

About this task

When you refresh the catalog, XClarity Administrator retrieves information about the latest available firmware updates from the Lenovo XClarity Support website and stores the information to the firmware-updates repository.

An Internet connection is required to refresh the product catalog.

Note: Refreshing the catalog only adds information about available firmware updates to the repository. It does not download the update packages. You must download the firmware updates to make the updates available for installation. For more information about downloading updates, see Downloading firmware updates.
