Scheduling a time for update from SEP Manager

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I wonder if it's possible to schedule a specific time for the updates from SEP Manager.

I have a group of VDI where I've set heart beat of 2 hours and download randomization of 4 hours.
These machines updates their distribution only from the Manager and not from Internet LiveUpdate servers.
In the LiveUpdate settings, I could not set the time of the day so those machines will updates themselves accordingly the heart beat and randomization but this means that updates will occour during all the day.

Is there a way to solve this?

 

Thanks

Hi diabolicus23,

At present, SEP cliets and GUPs update accordign to the heartbeat schedule.  Having a defined time at which to download AV content is a proposed enhancement request.  You may wish to cast a vote to express your support for that idea:

Clients can be scheduled to update at a specific time from an internal LIveUpdate Administrator 2.x server, but that will generally not be able to provide files that are as small as the deltas that come from a SEPM or GUP.  More traffic, but at a time of your choosing.

Hope this helps!

With thanks and best regards,

No way to schedule update from manager.

client will take updates based on heart beat interval.
