IBM BigFix Patch is deprecating the Linux RPM Patching site on September 29, 2017. The site will no longer appear in the License Overview dashboard after the said date.
In line with the site deprecation, BigFix Patch will no longer provide content and will end support for the analyses, wizard, tasks, and dashboard associated with the BigFix endpoint dependency resolution method.
As part of its commitment to continuous improvement, in recent years, BigFix Patch shifted from the BigFix endpoint dependency resolution to using the native tools of the different supported products. For example, with the Patches for RHEL 6 Native tools site, use of the Yellow dog Updated, Modified (YUM), replaced use of the Endpoint Dependency Resolver (EDR) utilities.
No action is required from users.
