Manage and Service a Run-Time Image

When a run-time image is deployed on a device, the run-time image can be managed remotely and serviced with security patches and Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) updates. Before you can use any of the automated managing and servicing features, they must be added to your run-time image and deployed.
