Software Update Server unix command

Hi guys,

I'm using one of our mac mini's as our software update server.

Using the app "Software Update Enabler" i can point all our client machines to the mac mini.

However, rather than going around every machine, how can i apply this to all the machines via the Unix command in Apple Remote Desktop? I used to do this with 10.5. and 10.6.

This command works in Terminal but not via Unix within ARD.

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL http://servername:8088/index.sucatalog

Has anyone got it working?

Thanks

RE: spaces...

Hi,

I don't know for sure, but I suspect the problem may be related to how ARD handles the "space" character between the Update and the Catalog. Have you tried quoting the command?

I just tired the command prefaced with "sudo" on a unix machine which is running the latest flavour....10.12? or thereabouts...It finds the targeted machine fine. Maybe it's a version difference?
