Update manager, a component of SVOM will let you know exactly when there are updates available
Davie wrote:Jonathon - you seem to have misunderstood something I said.
The ISO image of the update DVD is for creating a bootable DVD which will scan the hardware and show what needs updating in terms of BIOS and firmware. This is however obviously independent of OS as it is a bootable CD, and therefore can't check drivers and applications etc - just hardware components
As I stated earlier, there is no OS package that does exactly what you describe but the update manager component of ServerView Operations manager will look after BIOS, firmware as well as drivers and some FJ specific applications of a running server. But it is a component of the whole ServerView suite - there is no self-contained program which does what you ask

The download you want for SVOM is entitled Operations Manager (ServerView S2) - the bit in parentheses is the old name for the product
From what you've described you've only installed the ServerView Agents (and update agents) - Update Manager is a component of Operations Manager. The "widget" you describe sounds more like the little systray app which as I mentioned previously IS only a "view" app to show a simple health status overview

I don't usually tick the "detailed operating system tree" box - just select Server 2012 (rather than the specific flavour of 2012) and SVOM is listed there.
Release notes on the download page say nothing about Essentials not being supported
