Issue/Introduction

I need to pull down fixes to get to the latest maintenance level. What is the best way to do this? 

Environment

Release : 14.1

Component : Vantage Storage Resource Manager

(and other storage products / releases)

Resolution

There are 3 general methods for obtaining product maintenance: 

1) SMP/E Internet Service Retrieval  (this is the preferred method)
2) CSM (EOS June 2023)
3) Download from Broadcom Support (this is done manually and makes use of the CAUNZIP utility)
4) zOSMF
