The Sophos Update Manager, part of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X, enables you to configure the preferences for virus scanning, disinfection and reporting on all your networked Macintoshes. After the Sophos Anti-Virus Network Installer has created a Central Installation Directory (CID), Sophos Update Manager uses Macintosh X Server tools to automatically install and update all networked computers. You can specify shares on AppleShare, Samba or the web.
You should always use the Sophos Update Manager for these tasks, as the Sophos auto-updating process cannot put your changes into effect otherwise.
- For details, see section 1.2 "Setting up automatic updating and email virus alerts" of the Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X 10.2+ startup guide.
- Once you have set up a configuration, any computer installed from the CID by executing the Sophos Anti-Virus.mkpg file will use these options.
- Sophos Update Manager can subsequently be used to manually update the Sophos Anti-Virus.mpkg file in the Mac CID on your server. To do this, mount the Mac CID on the server and run the Sophos Update Manager from the CID.
