...and something for 10.5
Authored by: chrisfriend on Oct 27, '07 09:15:01PM
Since there are no software updates (yet) for 10.5, and it's possible to serve updates to clients on other OSes, here's a tip for those on an older server with users running Leopard. (I used the below hint to serve application updates to a Leopard client from a Tiger Server.)

Similar to the original hint from zpjet, adding an additional Redirect entry will cover the new URL for Leopard updates:

Pattern: /catalogs/others/index-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog

Please note that this simply points Leopard to the same catalog as everyone else. I'm sure there are likely to be implications beyond missing OS updates that I can't forsee, but it's working great for the time being, where no such updates are around to be missed.

I'd like to thank everyone else who provided the hints and tweaks above -- you've allowed the transition of my home LAN to Leopard to go much, much, much faster and more simply than I would have imagined.
