Hi

I am trying to set the preference for all Mac's on our system to use the Mac Mini Server for software updates but I can't get this to work.

I have tried the following URL's as described in some Apple support documents but they don't seem to work.

http://appleserv.drove.internal.com:8088/index-leopard-snowleopard.merged-1.sucatalog
http://appleserv.drove.internal:8088/index-leopard-snowleopard.merged-1.sucatalog
http://appleserv.drove.internal:8088/index.sucatalog

I have read that with Snow Leopard the default URL had changed but I can't seem to find this.

The server is running Max OS X Server 10.6.6 and the MacBook's are running 10.6.4.

Thanks
Mark

Apologises I've just figured it out.

The right address is:

http://appleserv.drove.internal:8088/index-leopard-snowleopard.merged-1.sucatalog

There was just a full stop at the end of the address.

Thanks
