So, I had software updates working before, though I couldn't get 10.9.1 or an imovie and iphoto. The rest worked fine.
Updated to 10.9.2 and server 3 0 3 and now when I try updates, I just get a message saying "no updates available".
Client is running 10.9.2 currently. I don't see anything wrong, not that I can tell anyways.
Yesterday I removed all the updates manually and downloaded them again and enabled them.
Just a plain jane 10.9 server, no 3rd party software other than deploy studio. Seems to image fine and everything else, just software updates that no longer work.
if you are using the NetSUS appliance, I noticed yesterday that it does not come with the latest version of reposado out of the box. You'll need the latest version as it includes support for the index-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.
A note of caution, the 10.9 update catalog includes all the developer preview updates for Mavericks (7 in total is what came down for me), all but one were over 2GB.
It says this:
If you locate the plist & press the space key, QuickLook should give you a preview of the plist & then you can read the contents better.
What we're looking for is the CatalogURL value.
I think the below should work too (not @ a mac to test though):
defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.softwareupdate CatalogURL
That'll be it then.
Your Mac is looking @ the 10.8 URL.
Since 10.6 Apple has unified the URL, I've a post it that: http://macmule.com/2011/07/21/how-to-connect-clients-to-lion-servers-apple-software-update-service/
Follow the link to the KB article for the correct format & defaults write command, then try again.
No, at this point, I am just trying to restore the functionality. I had 10.9.1 on the server before and they worked fine. updated to 10.9.2 and I have nothing now. I don't care much about iphoto and such, since it is rarely used at my work, but the other updates such as 10.9.2 for clients and such is kinda important.
maybe I just need to wipe out all settings for the sus and start from scratch, as long as I don't need to completely reinstall Server 3.0.3
