Filewave Admin 4.04.9496 on Mac OS X 10.6.4 (10F569) client


Apple's [url=http://http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1094]Security Update 2010-005[/url] was released and it states that, "Previous security updates have been incorporated into this security update."


I use an "OS X 10.6" fileset group where I put the installers for the downloads that show up in Software Update. For instance, instead of using Software Update to download Security Update 2010-005, I download it manually and then use Fileset-->New Fileset-->MSI/PKG to bring it into FW.


I used this process for [url=http://http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1029]Security Update 2010-003[/url] previously. The -003 update notes don't say it incorporates previous updates.


My questions are
  • Would you remove the Security Update 2010-003 package from your Fileset Group of Mac OS X installers, put in the Security Update 2010-005 package and expect your computers to work?
  • How would I go about checking that it did work? I find the [url=http://http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4312]security update descriptions[/url] somewhat cryptic on what files change or what version numbers the new files would have.
    How do I test this? Try it on a few machines and see if they reboot properly? If they reboot properly, do I assume success and roll it out to everyone?

I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Hi John,


Your previous security updates should all have been deployed as "Ignore at Verify" (by default). So there shouldn't be a problem with removing security update associations from your "OS X 10.6" group and replacing them with this one. For future clients, as long as they are at 10.6.4 before they get this update, there should not be a problem.


The best way to test this would be to take a new 10.6 machine straight to 10.6.4 (using the stand alone combo updater) and then deploy the Security update. If it activates and installs successfully, you are good to go!


Let us know how it works out for you. If you have any more questions or want some more clarification, feel free to ask!


Thanks,


-Dave

I checked my Security Update 2010-003 and it was set to Ignore at Verify. Thank you defaults. I moved it out of my OS X 10.6 group and updated the model. So far it seems OK.
