Introduction to CDT

Central Deployment Tool (CDT) is a tool that runs on Gaia Security Management Servers and Gaia Multi-Domain Security Management Servers.

This tool lets you manage deployment of software packages from your Management Server to multiple managed Security Gateways and Cluster Members at the same time:

  • Install and uninstall software packages.

  • Do different actions - take snapshots, run shell scripts, push or pull files, and so on.

  • Automate the RMA backup and restore procedure.

CDT handles cluster upgrades automatically, including Full Connectivity Upgrade - see Package Installation in Clusters.
