Before discussing Rumba setup, it is a good idea to understand some basic terminology and features of the Windows policy-based management environment.
The patch install package file (.msp) allows you to apply hot fixes to your Rumba product.

Administrators publish an application by making it available to users who might want the application. With published applications, each user decides whether or not to install the application from.
