Lenovo UpdateXpress support for Windows Server 2016

2016-11-03, 12:15 PM

Is there any way to know when Lenovo will introduce support for the UpdateXpress tool when running in a Windows Server 2016 environment? We must support this new OS for our strategic platform list however when I try to run version 10.2 of the tool on a new x3550-M5 server I receive the following error:

Hi,
I found there is plan for enhancement to UpdateXpress targeted second quarter 2017, which should support Windows 2016.

 

Also for reference,

there is new tool referred as "OneCLI" picking up features of current System x tools as DSA, ASU, etc. as well as UpdateXpress like code update feature.

Lenovo ToolsCenter Suite CLI (OneCLI)
https://support.lenovo.com/jp/en/documents/lnvo-tcli
There is "update" command listed in User's Guide. Official support for Windows 2016 option switch targeted for first quarter 2017.

 

regards,

I have a Lenovo System X 3100 M5 5457, with the latest version 10.6 (April 2019) of Lenovo UpdateXpress System Pack Installer that I can find. The notes for it say Windows Server 2016 is a supported OS, but when I run the utility I get the same error message mentioned above: "This launchpad is not intended to run on the current platform. Check the product documentation or contact your vendor for more information about supported platforms.  "
