Single GUP’s vs. Group Update Provider List
In our environment we have several sites with groups defined for each (actually an Active Directory sync). Within each group a local GUP server is defined to update clients on the local LAN. What I’m wondering about is that if a user whose machine is in a group that has the GUP defined for their local LAN travels to another site. If a definition update is available does it go over the WAN to the GUP defined for their group even though there may be a GUP at the location they are at? I’m guessing yes.
If I create a group update provider list will this resolve the problem? I’m thinking that the way this works is that the client see’s that there’s an update available and then checks the local subnet for a GUP and pulls the update from it?
If the site would not have a GUP setup and nothing is configured in the group update provider list that falls within the subnet that the client is located in would the client then go to the SEPM server get its update?
