LiveUpdate Administrator ? v12.1 RU2 vs v12.1 RU4

Created: 16 May 2014 • Updated: 19 May 2014 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

3 SEPMs - Version 12.1.4104.4130 (2 SEPMs shared SQL DB "site partners" and a Failover Replication Partner SEPM w/SQL DB)
1 LUA - Latest Version
10,000 Clients - Versions 12.1.1000.157 - 12.1.4100.4126

SEPMs fetch updates from the LUA. Our Clients are not allowed to pull from internet.  They are scheduled to get updates from SEPM at 4am with a 7 hour randomization.  LiveUpdate button enabled on client for "on demand" update. Of course, when client reboots, it will check for updates from the LUA.

My question is...  In LUA, I currently have v12.1 RU2 selected as my product from the catalog.  I just noticed that v12.1 RU4 is an option in the catalog.  Should I select this version now and remove v12.1 RU2 or have both selected?

 

Thank you!

You need both selected if you have 12.1 RU2 and RU4 clients.

Funny thing though, the Download and Distribution schedule runs for Version 12.1 RU2, everything works as before. I then added Version 12.1 RU4 to my Download and Distribute tasks.  When RU4 kicks off, a message states "No Updates are currently available for the products selected in this schedule."  So it seems RU2 and RU4 are one in the same when it comes to Content Updates for the client and the Manager.

To confirm this, I reversed the order. Later in the day, I ran the Download and Distribution schedule for RU4, it finds updates and then distributes them.  I then run the RU2 schedule, "No Updates are currently available for the products selected in this schedule."

Thoughts?

I found this:

Although it doesn't really address your situation but does explain the differences.
