I'm currently trying to finish setting up our Caching service along with SUS and am running into some issues I hope to get some help with. Our environment is configured as the following:
-- OS X Server 3.1.1 with clients running OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.2.
-- All machines are bound and receiving GP via an AD environment using Centrify.
-- GP pushes out the following two scripts to all machines:
* sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.appstore restrict-store-softwareupdate-only -bool yes --> Setting which disables all aspects of the App Store except for the Updates section
* sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL http://it0038-mmd.coveroregon.us:8088/catalogs.sucatalog --> Setting which redirects all of our machines to point to our SUS within our AD environment.
The problem I'm having is that I believe the Caching Service is working properly (at least with the 10.9.x clients) but it doesn't look like it is with the 10.8.5 clients; the same with SUS but for all clients. I have two machines with clean images running 10.8.5 and 10.9.0 that I took on 03/05/14; after applying the images and going to Software Update before joining them to my AD environment the following shows as available:
10.8.5. via Software Update --> Java for OS X 2013-005 1.0, Safari 6.1.3
10.8.5 via Caching --> Nothing appears.
10.9.0 via Software Update --> Digital Camera RAW Compatability Update 5.04, iBooks Update 1.0.1, iTunes 11.1.5, Java for OS X 2013-005 1.0, OS X Update Combined 10.9.2, Remote Desktop Client Update 3.7.1
10.9.0 via Caching --> Keynote, Numbers, GarageBand, Pages, iMovie, iPhoto
Once I join them to my AD environment and have the scripts run on the machines the following appears within Software Update on both machines:
10.8.5 Clients --> Nothing appears!
10.9.0 Clients --> Keynote, Numbers, GarageBand, Pages, iMovie, iPhoto
It looks like Caching is working properly but I'm wondering why nothing shows up on my 10.8.5 clients but I'm guessing it's because the Java and Safari updates are with SUS? I'm also guessing the other updates showing up on my 10.9.0 clients are specifically for Mavericks and hence why they're not also appearing on my 10.8.5 clients? Of course the main issue here is that I can't get my machines to see SUS properly.
I'm happy to supply any logs or anything else that would help get this issue resolved. It's really driving me nuts! **** a Starbucks GC or other compensation is in it if someone can help me!
Thanks in advance!
