PMS12.10 - Missing the Secondary Update Source

RobertoSilvaChu W/ Alumni Posts: 33 Junior Protector



I updated the PMS 12.00 to 12.10 and realize dont have more the Update Source (Secondary Update Source).


I need to block the secondary update source, because the customer have a really bad link, so he need block any antivirus update from internet, so he will "lock" the endpoint to get the updates from PMS.


F-Secure Policy Manager Server 12.00



F-Secure Policy Manager Server 12.10



As you can see in the two images, the PMS12.00 still have the primary and secondary update source and in the PMS 12.10 this option was removed.


Have anyway to block the secondary update source?


Best Regards,

    You are looking on an empty policy domain group. Add F-secure client to it and check again.

    Good morning!


    As you can see in the image, the option of update source still removed.



    I realized if you select a machine where using the old version (befofe 12.10), the Policy Manager show this option. So the option of the update source is disabled AFTER CS 12.10, if you still using CS 12.00 the Policy Manager will show this option.

    If the signatures databases download sharing method of "Neighborcast" is enabled, then the data traffic amount will be very minimal, even if the computers connect directly to the public net, rather than the PMS server.
