    Question Configure Google Chrome get update from local server via Chrome ADM Template (+ GPO)

    Hello everybody,
    I'm using Chrome for enterprise, and we have around 1000 computers use it. I've use the Administrative Template (http://dl.google.com/update2/enterpr...ogleUpdate.adm) to deploy Chrome via GPO.
    I don't want 1000 clients auto download the update from internet whenever Google release new version. I've tried use the Google Update ADM template (http://www.google.com/support/instal...wer=146164)and set a local server for client download (inside my company) but it still not work.

    What I've set for Google Update ADM template:
    -----------------------------------
    - Preference
    + Auto-update check period overide: Enable
    - Proxy Server:
    + Choose how to specify proxy server setting: Enable-Use fixed proxy server
    + Address or URL of proxy server: \\my local server
    - Applications
    + Allow installation default: Enable
    + Update policy override default: Enable
    + Google Chrome:
    . Allow installation: Enable
    . Update policy override: Enable
    ---------------------------------------------
    And the error: "Update failed (error: 7)An error occurred while checking for updates: Installation failed. Please try again. Error code = 0x80040813."
    Please advice and any answer very appreciate
    Thank you,

    We use two methods for this:
    Firstly for linux clients we just mirror the Chrome repository to a local server and tell spacewalk to issue that as the upgrade repository.
    For windows clients we disable the auto update via group policy and then send any updates out via a group policy.

    The problem you have is that ""Address or URL of proxy server: \\my local server"" doesn't mean a local update server, rather it is the address of an internet proxy server (such as squid) which networks use to cache and filter web connections. If you were using a proxy server then presumably the download would be cached on that.

    Is the update server in the proxy exceptions?

    I just update the MSI whenever it's required.
    I do it whenever there's a new major version or a big security bug (usually flash based...)

    It's a pain yes, but it's not a lot of work.

    Hi free780, I don't think my setting is right, as CyberNerd point out, "\\my local server" just share folder not a proxy server. Actually, I don't know how to build a proxy server in this case.

    Hi DrCheese,
    Should I choose "remove" the old version then "deploy" the new version; or go straight "Redeploy" the MSI from GPO? I'm wonder wich way is less take a long time when client starting up their computer.
    Thanks

    I tell it to upgrade the older version (just add the newer MSI to the same GPO)

    If you remove it and add the new MSI, it'll uninstall then install the newer version, making it take longer on startup.
