    setting up HTTP fallback repository

      anyone can advice if its possible to setup a fallback http repository? if yes, besides the entire commonupdater folder, what else do i need in this folder so that if the master fails, clients can still update via this fallback?

      PS : the epo4 server is in an intranet and is not possible to have access to the internet.

      thanks!

          An additional http repo would usually update from the orginal epo server.
          setting this is up is page 107-108 of the EPO 4.00 product guide.

            You can also add a manual repository to the epo agent policies.

              metalhead : what do you mean by a manual repository?

              tonyb99 : our setup is such that the epo server facing the internet (EXT) will mirror from NAI, then transfer the package over to the intranet where the epo server there (INT) will host the package on itself. the ePO on INT will pull updates from INT itself and serve it to the clients on the intranet. there is yet another server (SerA) on the intranet too that grabs the file transferred from EXT and host it on itself. this repository used to be UNC but now they've decided to remove it and change it to HTTP.

              my problem is : the HTTP doesn't seemed to work. will you be able to advise where went wrong? IIS Settings? Folder Permissions?

              FYI : this HTTP repository doesn't allow Directory Browsing.

                You can add a repository when editing the McAfee agent policy - this will be a so called "local" repository as it will not be replicated with the epo masterrepository. For a local repository you must take care of filling it with the proper update files.

                    i setup both http and ftp mirrors as local repositories as per the following urls :
                    update.nai.com/products/commonupdater + port 80
                    ftp.nai.com/CommonUpdater/ + port 21
                    using these local repositories, i get the following problem :
