10.6 Server: Set the appropriate Software Update Server
Authored by: jcbeckman on Oct 21, '09 08:34:13AM

The different catalogs are listed in the manual for Software Update, as well as the commands for setting the catalog via the terminal in unmanaged clients. Lots of good info in that manual.

10.6 Server: Set the appropriate Software Update Server

True, the commands and URLs are in the manual. You're missing the point of the hint if you think that's adequate, though.

The strength of this hint is the AppleScript. It allows you to run the same script on all types of machines, without first needing to check which OS version you're running. There is no error message if you choose the wrong catalog, so having three separate scripts can be problematic.
