    How to distribute SysAdmin client to some users via AutoUpdate, but not others?


    Create separate AutoUpdate directory & path for those users:
    1. Connect via SSH to server as voyager user.
    2. cd /m1/voyager/clients/autoupdate
    3. cp -pr voyager sysadminResult : a new AutoUpdate directory called (in this example) sysadmin (/m1/voyager/clients/autoupdate/sysadmin) which is a copy of voyager  (/m1/voayger/clients/autoupdate/voyager) AutoUpdate directory.
    4. cd sysadmin
    5. Edit update.txt to include \SysAdmin.exe and \SysAdmin.chm
    6. Ensure SysAdmin.exe and SysAdmin.chm are in sysadmin directory.
    7. cd ../voyager and ensure SysAdmin files are not included in update.txt for other users.
    8. Set [Upgrade] stanza in voyager.ini file on the PCs that will receive SysAdmin client so that it points to the new directory:
    Voyager=http://<user>:<password>@<server IP>:7099/autoupdate/sysadmin/


    With increased security of Windows systems, AutoUpdate has become increasingly problematic to implement and support. In some environments it no longer works.  Support recommends you consider different options/methods for installing new clients.
