in a cluster this is automatically done generally. One node wakes up, asks all other nodes about their versions and then it talks to our servers to obtain and distribute all updates. By default all nodes in a cluster will show this behaviour, e.g. every node will ask all other nodes and obtail updates if necessary. You can configure this to only have a handful of nodes retrieve updates for all other nodes or - if the default behaviour is fine - just leave it as it is. While one node is downloading updates the other nodes won't download the data from our servers.
Okay Andre, that's fine
but must the nodes be in the same Network group ?!
and after that.. must the nodes in the same cluster have the same URL filter version and anti-malware DAT files ?!
Thnx a lot for your reply
the systems need to be in the same update group. The currently installed versions do not matter. Every node reports its version and the updating nodes consolidates the required updates. It gets the required updates for each node, so if you have like
Node A - version 2
Node B - version 2
Node C - version 1
and version 3 is the latest, the update will download the file that updates version 2 to version 3 for Node A and B and it will download the files required to bring Node C to version 3 and distributed it to Node C.
if node C "update automatically from internet" check box is disabled..will it take the updates from Node A or B ?!

Both... if Node A decides to check for updates before Node B does, Node A will distribute the updates to the cluster. If Node B is faster, Node B will distribute the updates.
thank you,,,You are th best Sabban
