Configure the self-updating of an update manager

If you use role-based administration, you must have the Policy setting - updating right to configure an update manager. For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

  1. If you are in the Endpoints view, click the Update managers button on the toolbar to display the Update managers view.
  2. In the list of update managers, select the update manager for which you want to configure self-updating. Right-click and click View/Edit configuration.
  3. In the Configure update manager dialog box, on the Advanced tab, select an update manager version you want to keep up to date with.
    For example, if you select “recommended”, the update manager will always be upgraded to the version that is labeled as such at Sophos. The actual update manager version will change.
