Updating provisioning templates

Use Update templates to download and update predefined templates optimized for specific system hardware and common provisioning tasks. You can also specify proxy server settings if you use a proxy server for external access.

NOTE: When any scheduled template update task runs, it uses the settings on this dialog box that are current at the time, not the settings when the scheduled task was created.
