Control Update Cache through policy
Would like the ability to specify what update caches a particular group of machines can use through the update policies. The current method would not work in our network environment, with our remote sites, as geographically distant locations may be forced to update from locales that are neighbours in subnets.
Here is another Featurerequest for the same issue
Hello, we are facing the same problems and requirements. The design of the MessageRelays and UpdateCaches should be urgently reconsidered!
The logic for determining proximity to Update Cache for downloads should be determined based on speed and not IP address class as it is currently.
Link the existing “--messagerelays=” installer flag to utilize not only the Message Relay feature of the Update Cache but also the actual Update Cache
OR Add “--updatecaches=”
Allow the use of Sophos Computer Groups for Update Cache assignments (there’s already a flag to assign the computer to a specific group)
