SEPM Site Configuration - How do I force subnets to connect to their respective site SEPM?

Created: 18 Nov 2013 | 9 comments

Hello,

I've recently setup a new SEPM server in one of our remote sites because the traffic for LiveUpdates were too much for the small links between sites.  Now that I have this new SEPM server up and replicated, how do I assure that my users in that site/subnet connect automatically to it for LiveUpdates?  I tried to for the SEPM to only allow the subnet + the replication partner but I don't know where to check if users are connecting to it.  Any ideas?

Nick.

Have you considered using GUPs to distribute your content updates?

You can check the client system log to ensure they're downloading defs from the SEPM.

I don't find the installation on the CD's I downloaded or within the SEPM installation steps.

GUP is nothing but a client, You set that in the Liveupdate policy,nothing additional is needed.

I don't need to configure anything on the client because when I do a search using this method, I don't find any clients supporting GUP...

1 In the console, click Clients.
2 On the Clients tab, in the View box, select Client status.
3 In the Tasks pane, click Search clients.
4 In the Find drop-down list , select Computers.
5 In the In Group box, specify the group name.
6 Under Search Criteria, click in the Search Field column and select Group Update Provider.
7 Under Search Criteria, click in the Comparison Operator column and select =.
8 Under Search Criteria, click in the Value column and select True.
9 Click Search.
 

I have a few clients that do indeed have the latest version of 12.4 installed but none of them show up.

first you need to assign one client as GUP using the document I posted above,

what you have posted is to find how many gups you have set..

Please look at this document
