First post to experts exchange so bear with me! I am Trying to create a registy file that stops sophos from checking for updates on startup and wait for the update schedule. You may ask why? the main reason is I work in education, chances are the pc has already been on 10 minutes ago from the previous class and has been shutdown and when the user then next turns it on it checks again extra network traffic and work for the pc's which are not top spec everywhere that is not needed. The default cycle is every 2 hours anyway.
I created the code below, and it works however when I import in to group policy I have to manually type into the policy when I enable it the following line:
svc.exe" "C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\AL
What I am trying to achieve is to have the information already there as default so it is there when the administrator enables to the policy rather than have to type in the line.
First time I have experimented with creating my own .adm file so any help would be appreciated.
#if version >= 4
KEYNAME "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Sophos AutoUpdate Service"
DEFAULT " "C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\ALsvc.exe" "C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\ALsvc.exe" -NoStartupCheck"
Sophos="Sophos No Update"
