Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

By default, software update files are downloaded from the Internet using the credentials of the logged-on user and the proxy settings configured for the user in Internet Explorer. The UpdDwnldCfg.exe utility is available on the Configuration Manager 2007 DVD and on every site server. It can be used to modify the server and account credentials used to access the Internet through the following components:

  • A firewall.

  • A proxy server.

  • A computer that is running Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) server.

When running the UpdDwnldCfg.exe utility to modify the server and account credentials, the following switches can be used:

  • /s: Specifies the name of the firewall, proxy server, or ISA server computer, and the port number that is used when downloading software update files from the Internet.

  • /u: Specifies the user account that is used to connect through the firewall, proxy server, or ISA server.

  • /clean: Removes the server and account settings previously configured by running upddwnldcfg.exe.

Use the following procedures to modify the server and account settings used when software update files are downloaded from the Internet and to remove the settings previously configured by using the UpdDwnldCfg.exe utility.

To modify the server and account settings used when downloading software update files

  • On the site server, run <ConfigMgrInstallationFolder>\bin\<platform>\<language>\UpdDwnldCfg /s:<servername>:<port> /u:<username>. For example, for x86 and English (US), run <ConfigMgrInstallationFolder>\bin\i386\00000409\UpdDwnldCfg /s:MyProxy:80 /u:MyAccount.

To remove the server and account settings previously configured by running upddwnldcfg.exe

  • On the site server, run <ConfigMgrInstallationFolder>\bin\<platform>\<language>\UpdDwnldCfg /clean.
