Moving the Software Update Server data store off the startup disk
Posted on 2010-11-11
Has anyone succeeded in moving the Software Update Server data store off the startup disk?
The default data store is /var/db/swupd/ on the startup disk. Whenever I change the setting (in Server Admin) to a location that is not on the startup disk, the sync to Apple's server fails, and the Software Update Server error log says:
Syntax error on line 287 of /etc/swupd/swupd.conf:
DocumentRoot must be a directory
Line 287 of /etc/swupd/swupd.conf contains the URL of the data store.
I have tried all kinds of locations and made sure that the privs are correct. No luck.
