|Updating computers / Configuring the update manager|
Sophos Update Manager (SUM) is always installed on the computer where you install Enterprise Console. If you selected Custom Setup during the installation, this is the computer where the management server is installed.
You can add one or more additional update managers to your network. You may want to do this to reduce the load on the update manager that is already installed and distribute updates more efficiently. You can install an additional update manager on a computer that does not yet have an update manager installed.
To enable an additional update manager to download security software from Sophos or another update manager via HTTP, open TCP port 80 (outbound) on the computer on which you want to install the additional update manager. To enable the update manager to download security software from another update manager via a UNC path, open the following outbound ports on the computer: UDP port 137, UDP port 138, TCP port 139, and TCP port 445.
If the computer is running a version of Windows that includes the Network Discovery feature, and the feature is turned off, turn it on and restart the computer.
If User Account Control (UAC) is enabled on the computer, turn off UAC and restart the computer. You can turn UAC on again after you have installed the update manager and subscribed to Sophos updates.
If the computer is in a domain, log on as a domain administrator.
If the computer is in a workgroup, log on as a local administrator.
The update manager installer is located on the computer where Enterprise Console management server is installed, in the shared folder \\Servername\SUMInstallSet. To view the location of the installer, go to the View menu and click Sophos Update Manager Installer Location.
You can install Sophos Update Manager using Windows Remote Desktop.
To install an additional update manager:
The computer where you installed Sophos Update Manager should now appear in Enterprise Console, Update managers view. (On the View menu, click Update Managers.)
To configure the update manager, select it, right-click, and then click View/Edit Configuration.
