Sophos updating policy secondary server pauley perrette and michael weatherly dating
If you have no Windows Server, and can no longer use SUM, this leaves two more possibilities, first you could use the standalone SAV9 installer.
It is even possible to pre-configure the auto-update account details for this.
The final possibility and the one Sophos are pushing Mac only customers to, is to sign up for an subscription to Sophos Cloud.
Ok, I did a bit more testing, as mentioned the mpkg you found does not include the needed auto-update preferences.
I have found that if you do the following in the following order the desired results seem to be achieved. Bit messier than I thought it was going to be, the following looks like being the 'official' way to do it.
Note: Yes if you install SAV9 manually on a Mac and then make a monolithic master disk image that would work, however I like many others now prefer to use a thin imaging approach (via Insta DMG or Auto DMG).
Good spot, it does get us closer but that mpkg does not contain the pre-configured auto-update settings.
Sophos support says that it is an issue with Windows, but as far as Windows is concerned it can see and access the share on the Sophos Management server.
