Re: [EXTERNAL] Macos-x-server Digest, Vol 86, Issue 2

The SWUD files are going on a stand-alone network not connected to anything, so I don’t see how caching service is going to work.  Perhaps I am missing something with Caching Service, isn’t it for iOS, Apps, iBooks, and such? I didn’t think it was needed for SWUD Server. It worked on 10.9.

I need to copy the Software Update files off of an El Capitan server to another El Capitan server on a stand-alone network so that the stand-alone Mac users will be able to update their software via Software Update and not have to download and move the installer dmg files.  Other than the Software Update folder, are there any other files I need to move over?

It's all contained in there, but is there a reason why you're still using the Software Update service instead of the Caching service? The Caching service requires zero configuration on the clients and caches the App Store (OS X, iOS, iBooks) as well as system updates and iCloud data. Do you block updates? That can make your systems unsafe if you aren't quick at approving security updates for zero day exploits.

If there's no internet access, then it won't/can't work. But how are you getting software updates onto that server in the first place? On a USB stick?

The Caching Service caches the App Store for OS X/macOS and iOS (as well as iBooks and now iCloud as well if you want). That includes all the software updates that the Software Update Service has, but as it only caches the ones your clients use, it's more efficient use of disk space. The Caching Service replaces Software Update Service (with the caveat that you can't block updates).
