  1. sudo serveradmin stop swupdate
  2. make changes to files in /Library/Server/Software\ Update/Config
  3. sudo serveradmin start swupdate
  4. Wait for updates to download

Awesome.... it continues to amaze me ( I don't know why at this point ) that Apple doesn't seem to ever get the SUS server 100% right. Thanx erikng for figuring it out this time and posting the corrections as a GIST which is awesome compared to wading thru Apple Discussions and/or waiting for Apple getting around to updating the software.

Thanks so much, I always need to google for these required updates after a SUS change is required.

Thank you!

I replaced swupd.conf and swupd.plist with the files above, but how can I access the sucatalog file? doesn't seem to work...

@tjsoftworks I think that apple wants more people to go to caching server for software updates.

Copy link

Motionbug, that would be fine if caching server served updates. It just serves apps.

@jondthompson the Caching service as part of 2.2.1 did serve software updates when accessed by clients running 10.8.2 or later, the one in Mavericks server also serves these other content types.
Also, people are seemingly coming to this thread without context, just to be explicit this gist seems like it was originally helpful for folks using the wdas/reposado project.

Hey guys, sorry for never replying to any of the comments (I never received any notifications!).

Given that Yosemite is now quasi-public, I've decided to make a new gist for it.
