What is SSM?


Ssm

SSM (System Software Manager) is a free solution provided from HP that streamlines the mass deployment of system software updates.


Ssm

SSM reduces the complexity of system software management by delivering the following capabilities

1 Deploying system software updates (for drivers and BIOS, for

example) from a centralized file store to multiple client PCs –

simultaneously and automatically.

2 Deploying customer-created update packages.

3 Enforcing BIOS configurations and passwords.

4 Logging the changes made to each computer.

How does SSM work?


Ssm works by

SSM Works By

1 Creating a file share name that is used to store the HP drivers.

{SSMFileStore}

2 Executing the automation command on your client.

{ssm.exe /accept }

3 Comparing installed drivers with the available drivers in your

SSMFileStore.

4 Automatically installing the driver updates on each machine.

No user intervention is required.

3 SSM engine detects updates

4 Updates get installed


Ssm options

SSM Options

1 Rebooting the client machine so that an update takes

immediate effect or not reboot so the user can continue

working.

2 Displaying a status bar so that the user can monitor progress.

3 Creates a summary report that can be uploaded to a

centralized share for later analysis.

4 The SSM.exe can be deployed through scripts or other

software management systems.


Ssm basic usage

SSM Basic Usage

1 Download, Run the SSM SoftPaq to extract the SSM program and

support files.

2 Create and share a directory that will be used as the file store.

3 Copy SSM.EXE and SSM.CAB to the file store.

4 Download product (desktop, laptop, etc) softpaqs.

Example file store: c:\SSMFS, or share: \\MyServer\SSMFS

– Place all SoftPaq files (unpacked) in the file store created in step 2

5 Run SSM in “Admin” mode to configure

6 On each client computer, run SSM in Update Mode by specifying the

UNC path to the filestore on the command line:

{\\MyServer\SSMFS\SSM.exe \\MyServer\SSMFS /Accept /Report}

7 View log of actions performed

> View from StartRun: %temp%\%computername%.htm

> Review for list of software applicable to the system, updates

performed, and any errors
