When running ConfigCID.exe from a command prompt you receive the error:
Failed to open catalog
Failed to open catalog C:\documents\master.upd
Failed to open catalog C:\documents\cidsync.upd
Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
Sophos Update Manager
- The local path to the distribution point is being used in the command and the path has a space in it.
- Permissions on the share/ folder do not allow the logon user account (that is running the command) write access.
What to do
When running ConfigCID.exe ensure you use either the UNC path to the distribution point or enclose the entire local path in double-quotes.
- Correct examples:
- Local path:
configcid.exe "C:\my shares\SophosUpdate\CIDs\S123\SAVSCFXP\"
- UNC path:
NOTE: 'S123' and 'SAVSCFXP' may need changing on your server - confirm the exact path on your server.
If the issue continues check the security and sharing permissions on the Windows share and ensure that the account you are logged as has write access.
