Provide general information regarding the functionality, versions, location in the catalog, and installation of the LUC Agent.
The LUC Agent is a light weight tool that performs data conversions in WMI to assist with the applicability rules for each update in the Lenovo Updates Catalog. The applicability rules determine if an update is installed or is applicable to the device. The agent being installed is a prerequisite to deploying Lenovo driver, BIOS, or software updates from the Lenovo Updates Catalog. The LUC Agent process will only be invoked on a Software Updates Scan Cycle or Software Updates Deployment Evaluation Cycle, whether it be from the schedule defined in client settings or by starting manually on the device. If the LUC Agent is not installed, updates may show as applicable even after installing or updates may not show up at all.
