Project description

build coverage python license docs status


vmupdate is a command line utility used to keep your virtual machines up to date. It searches your computer for virtualizers, queries them for a list of VM’s, and runs the appropriate update commands.

Read the docs for more details.


The recommended installation tool is pip:

$ pip install vmupdate

Getting Started

Create a vmupdate.yml file with the credentials to login to your virtual machines:

  Username: myuser
  Password: mypass

And pass that file to the utility:

$ vmupdate --config "/path/to/config/vmupdate.yaml"

Note: This method is included for simplicity, but is not recommended due to the inherent insecurity of a plaintext password. Read the Configuration documentation for more options.
