Incorporating new PGP software into existing PGP Universal Server

Created: 11 Jan 2013 | 3 comments

With the recent release of PGP Desktop 10.3.0, is there a way to incorporate that into a PGP Universal Server v3.2.0?  I would rather the update be pushed out via the Universal Server, instead of users installing the new verion themselves.

I don't think so.  As far as I'm aware you need to update the server first and that's normally where the client for the desktops is downloaded from.  So whatever Universal Server version is related to 10.3.0 is the one that needs to be on the server, I don't think you can push a newer client to the server.

Although someone might know if it's possible another way.

There is generally a pup file available for Universal, that simply updates the Desktop packages but not any of the Universal packages.  Such a pup file was produced for 3.3/10.3 but I do not know how it is distributed.

Generally we recommend (in support) that if you are going to be running 10.3.0 Encryption Desktop clients that you run a compatible server version to manage them as well. THis would be Symantec Encryption Server (formerly PGP Universal Server) version 3.3.0. this would require a regular PUP update to your existing 3.2.0 PGP Universal Server installation. It's a straight forward upgrade from 3.2.0 to 3.3.0. You just download the 750-800MB pup file from
