Group Update Provider policy settings
We use SEPM 12.1 RU1 and all clients are having SEP12.1 RU1 client software installed.
For downloading new definitions we have configured the live update policy to use multiple GUP servers.
This seems to work fine except for the option "Maximum time that clients try to download updates from a Group Update Provider before trying the default management server" this is ignored or not working like it suppose to do.
We have set this option to "Never" because we don't want clients to download new definitions from the default management server.
Despite the fact that we have set it to never download from..... it still happens that clients are downloading from the default management server.
The client is in the same subnet as the GUP server and happens most of the time after a client failed to download from the GUP for more than 10 times. Which is strange because the GUP server is online and up to date.
Nevertheless whether or not the GUP server is online or up to date we don't want clients to download from the default management server.
So the question is how can we make sure that clients Never download updates from the default management server but always use their GUP server?
BTW Clients that are connected over the VPN and thus in a different subnet also downloads from the default management server. This is not what we want either but we can live with this.
