Definition update automation tool

Answers

  • Hi,

    Did you download the FEP update definitions to the package and distributed it once using the SCCM Admin Console, it looks like the content is not there. Try updating the package and Deployment Management once from inside the SCCM Admin console again an then try running the SoftwareUpdateAutomation tool again.

    Is the software updates share on a different server? make sure permissions are setup correctly as well.

    Regards,
    Jörgen

  • Hi,

    Yes I am using it succefully, you need to check out the following blog post as well on the syntax. http://blogs.technet.com/b/clientsecurity/archive/2011/07/18/errors-when-using-the-fep-2010-definition-update-automation-tool.aspx

    The command line I use is:

    SoftwareUpdateAutomation.exe" /AssignmentName FEP2010SignatureUpdates /PackageName FEP2010Signature /UpdateFilter "articleid='2461484' AND IsSuperseded=0 AND IsEnabled=1 AND IsExpired=0" /refreshdp

    Make sure that all characters are correct if you copy paste it and change the AssignementName and PackageName.

  • Hi,

    It works great in the environments I have implemeted it in, easy to monitor that it worked as you can watch the source version of the Update Package to see that it updated the DP's.

    Much better than using the WSUS solution, i really recommend it.

  • ARGHHH...The Technet article posted above is referred to in lots of blogs but no longer exists.

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh297450.aspx

    I keep getting Unknown argument "/RefreshDP" when I try to use this tool.
