Are you not using a managment solution like protection pilot or EPO?
Yes we do use EPO but, this done right after we image the machine, before we put it in the office, we set the auto update times manually according to floor. Once the machine is in the appropriate we do all the rest with EPO.
I am looking for a way to change the auto update time via a log in script.
Why dont you have groups in epo for each floor and then set the different update tasks in EPO, you seem to making a rod for your own back.
because we don't know where a machine will reside until we cross reference our list, so it is easier to do it then and there when we have our list in hand, then later with EPO, so we don't forget.
You know the old saying out of sight, out of mind.
Still would like to know if there is a way to change the auto update time via the cmdline?
you could create an autoupdate task locally as long as you dont do one in EPO and dont allow EPO tasks to overwrite local tasks, still seems a bit daft though.
(you could even package 3 versions of VSE with different updates on each)
What is their reason for updating at different times of the day considering its a pretty tiny update assuming they are up to date and you are using the correct patches for VSE?
Bandwidth and traffic issues, we try to split the updates times per floor.
I find it hard to believe that mcafee didn't think of a cmdline way to update the auto update times.
yes the patches are correct.
bandwidth is tiny for daily updates now @35kb per pc dependent on number of products installed.
This is an order of magnitude less than it was for VSE 8.0
I just need to know Is there a way via a cmdline script or a utility that can automate this process?
no there isnt
