Adobe Update Server Nightly Sync

From AFP548 Wiki

With CS5, Adobe has added the ability to have a local software update server. While the script works nice, it needs to be run manually to sync against Adobe's servers. Below are scripts I made to automatically sync the updates every night.

LaunchDaemon[edit]

edu.pct.AdobeUpdateSync.plist - Place in /Library/LaunchDaemons - Load with launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/edu.pct.AdobeUpdateSync.plist - Permissions should be root:wheel with 644 permissions.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>Label</key>
	<string>edu.pct.AdobeUpdateSync</string>
	<key>ProgramArguments</key>
	<array>
		<string>/usr/local/bin/asus-wrapper.sh</string>
	</array>
	<key>StartCalendarInterval</key>
	<dict>
		<key>Hour</key>
		<integer>5</integer>
		<key>Minute</key>
		<integer>0</integer>
	</dict>
</dict>
</plist>

Sync Script[edit]

Here is the script that actually does the syncing. Place this in /usr/local/bin as root:staff, 755 permissions.

#!/bin/sh
DATE=`date "+%m%d%y-%H%M%S"`
echo "--------------------------------" >> /var/log/asus-sync.log
echo "Date: ${DATE}" >> /var/log/asus-sync.log
echo "2" | /Applications/AdobeUpdateServerSetupToolCS5.app/Contents/MacOS/AdobeUpdateServerSetupToolCS5 --root="/Volumes/Storage1/Adobe Updates/CS5" >> /var/log/asus-sync.log
echo "--------------------------------" >> /var/log/asus-sync.log

This currently logs to /var/log/asus-sync.log, this way you can see whats going on.

Note for AUSST2.0[edit]

There shouldn't need to be anything special. I've dropped the 2.0 tool along side the 1.0, and just updated the asus-wrapper.sh file to read "AdobeUpdateServerSetupTool2.0" instead of "AdobeUpdateServerSetupToolCS5"
