Not sure whether this has already been posted.?

Would it be possible, in larger, distributed environments for SEP Clients to automatically locate their closest logical GUP?

(Based on a GUP in the same subnet - For example).

We already do this today, if you have a look in the LiveUpdate policy, you have the option to enable a GUP based on criteria - the clients will then find the GUP in their subnet and use it.

Its not perfect - if you dont have a GUP in the subnet, the client has to fail over to a specific GUP, but its solving the problem for a lot of customers today.

To get updates from GUP that is in different subnet, please use explicit GUP option
