Internet Related/Filtering/Firewall Thread, Configure Google Chrome get update from local server via Chrome ADM Template (+ GPO) in Technical; Hello everybody,
I'm using Chrome for enterprise, and we have around 1000 computers use it. I've use the Administrative Template ...

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.

Thanks for reply CyberNerd.
Can you please show me how do you send updates via a group policy?
Do I tried redeploy the msi every time Google release new version??

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.

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.
