I've been trying to use the DELL and Adobe Updates catalog with SCUP 4.5 and had no luck.
What I did:
* Install SCUP 4.5 on the Central Site Server with a remote Database. I used the script to create a new database on the SQL Server the Central Site ConfigMgr Server uses.
* I configured the ConfigMgr Site System that holds the Software Update Point to be the remote update server in SCUP.
* The WSUS console was obviously installed, otherwise the SCUP installation wizard would ask me to do so.
* In the SCUP Settings: Update Server I created a self-signed certificate. I forgot to the "trusted root certficate authorities" and "trusted publishers" on the other servers and clients in the first place, but contrary to the post from Jason Lewis (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/video/scup-publishing-an-update
) I got no errors while trying to publish a DELL update, so I guess this applies only to self-created updates.
What I expected to happen:
* I expected to be able to go to the SCUP Settings, Import List: Add Adobe and Dell.
* Then I expected to be able to publish particular updates (either metadata-only or full) to the WSUS
* Finally, I expected the updates to show up in the ConfigMgr Console and be able to deploy them.
* When I'm trying to download the catalogs (Import Updates) -> Bulk Catalog Import...
From the following locations:ftp://ftp.dell.com/catalog/DellSDPCatalogPC.cab
... the Log file C:\Users\myuser\AppData\Lo
isher.log states: "Download file: http://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/SCUP/Reader10_Catalog.cab
failed with message "The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required."
* I'm also unable to download updates from the manually downloaded and installed .CAB from dell. (Same Error Message)
Further steps I tried:
* Download the .CAB from dell and import it -> Works
* Set the Publish Flag to one particular test update and deploy it: "Proxy authentication required"
* Manually download the .cab files from a browser with my user (works)
* Used the local system account with: "psexec /s cmd" -> iexplore <cab file location> -> Works.
According to this blog post from Jason Lewis, this shouldn't be a problem with 4.5 anymore:
I'd be glad for any help.
Thanks and kind regards.
