Multiple and Explicit GUP
Our environment is operating at SEP 11. We have several branch offices having 500 to 600 workstations over 20 subnets in each branch office. We will be upgrading to SEP 12.1 RU2 very soon and are planning to have a GUP at the branch office to reduce the load on the WAN which connects our head office with the branch office. Due to infrastructure limitations, we will be able to use only one server as a GUP at each branch office.
My idea is to create one group with a LiveUpdate Policy. The Policy will have Multiple GUP and Explicit GUP option enabled. Multiple GUP option will have rule sets that will define the IPs of all the GUPs at the branch offices.
The Explicit GUP list will map all 20 subnets in each branch office with the GUP available in that location. This way , my guess is the clients at the branch office will be able to communicate across subnet in the same branch office and still conserve the bandwidth over WAN.
Kindly help me my letting me know if this idea would work and suggest any alternatives if this wouldn't work or if there is any better way of achieving this.
