Create a transparent local software update server
Authored by: paullyjay on Oct 29, '09 10:55:15AM

OK, I have this up and running on 10.6.1 server now...

Follow all the steps from the top post... (Great post BTW)
then also add 2 more redirects:

pattern: /content/catalogs/others/index-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog
path: http://yourserver.yourdomain.com:8088/index-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog

pattern: /content/catalogs/others/index-leopard-snowleopard.merged-1.sucatalog
path: http://yourserver.yourdomain.com:8088/index-leopard-snowleopard.merged-1.sucatalog

Then instead of using: lookupd -flushcache

use: dscacheutil -flushcache on the client

Now try running software update on the client computer...

I am also using Snow Leopard Server (10.6.2)

Could you share with us exactly how you entered your DNS and redirect settings?

As far as I can see I have everything set up correctly. All 3 catalog files resolve to the local server when entered in a client browser, yet the client machines do not find any updates (and yes the software update service is started, updates downloaded and enabled).

I tested on several other machines today, and suddenly it works fine. Go figure....
