Issue
When setting up a new update location, you get the following error:
The location '[\\server\SophosUpdate]' ends with the reserved folder name 'SophosUpdate'. Please choose another location.

Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)

Enterprise Console 4.5.0

What To Do

As of Enterprise Console 4.5, you cannot name your new update locations 'Sophos Update' because this name is now reserved for the default share.

When creating new shares, use another name, such as 'Update'.

No changes are needed to the way you reference the update locations within your updating policies.
