OK, so Ops Center will provision an OS, patch the OS, and upgrade the OS, but is it also capable of deploying additional software after the OS is up and running ?
For example, packages for third party backup agents (TSM, Networker, Netbackup etc).
Basically, can I import non-OS packages into the software library, and create projects/plans to deploy those packages on remote hosts after the OS has been provisioned ?
Absolutely, you can use Ops Center to deploy any 3rd party application, scripts, TAR/ZIP files, configuration files and pre/post action scripts. After uploading those as 'Local Content', you can either deploy them through "View/Modify Catalog" under each OS asset, or use OS profile to automate the deployment of multiple components together.
Please review the following document about Local Content:
And how to use OS Update profiles:
