Update Distribution

8 posts in this topic

I was trying to create an Update Distribution, but it doesn't seem to be wroking right. All computers are Windows XP SP3, KIS 7.0.1.325.

 

I have one computer set to create an update distribution at \\server\Kaspersky.

 

If I run that computer, then update another using \\server\Kaspersky as the update source, it updates successfully. I then run the update again and I get Update is not required.

If I change the update source to Kaspersky Update Servers (http://dnl-usX.kaspersky.com) it will update saying that it completed successfully. If I run it again I get Update is not required.

 

Why am I recieving updates from the Kaspersky Update Servers, when I just updated to an update distribution, that was updated less than 10 minutes earlier?

 

I also noticed that the Update Distribution does not create/copy the .dif files, is this normal?

 

Thanks,

Wesley

hi wes, why dont you just set to kaspersky server, or kaspersky server us, or the county your from & leave it alone. set the update settings to hourly or what you want & keep it that way. <_<

Because I was wanting to create an update server to use. The option is there, why not use it, and save on bandwidth.

It may be that there is just a new update by the time I finish running the updater. I tried it again yesterday and it gave no additional updates when switching back to kaspersky servers.

I just ran it again. If I switch to Kaspersky update servers and there is an update available, I was also able to update the Update distribution again. It appears as if Kaspersky does a really good job of updating. In less than 5 minutes there is already (an) update(s) available.

 

I guess I'll stick with the Kapsersky servers.

that's why we want to see the available updates, could be just the indexes with the update dates & stats that's updated.
