Managing AUSST Storage Size

Community Beginner ,
Apr 10, 2019 Apr 10, 2019

Copied

I am led to believe that there is no way to customise the setup and storage requirements of Adobe Update Server using the Setup Tool.

We use a virtual machine and the storage on the 'updates partition' just passed the 300GB mark. I don't believe that the size of the updates collection is warranted by the service that we require from that server (to update Creative Cloud).

I am considering manually removing updates from the AUSST folder structure for products that are not in use (such as CS5). I imagine the server will still believe that these files are present and so incremental synchronisation will continue to download only the newer updates.

 

i) Is there any guidance/rule of thumb regarding determining what updates would not be required (or generally managing the storage size)?

 

ii) As an option for AUSST in future, would it be possible to just maintain a log of last downloaded files so we could determine which files had not been required ever or for years?

 

Thank you.

 

(I placed the question here as I noticed a similar question previously in this forum)

Hi,

Yes, you can now use --cleanup command to remove old versions. This feature came in the most recent AUSST release.

Use the Adobe Update Server Setup Tool (AUSST)

Remove obsolete products that are not required

Downloads of all products except for those specified in filter are removed.

AdobeUpdateServerSetupTool.exe --root="<root folder>" --incremental --cleanup --filterProducts="<sap codes you want to retain after cleanup>"

Hello, 

Kindly use only SAP code in filterProduct switch and check if that works for you. You can check the sample command under "common use cases" section: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/enterprise/package/help/update-server-setup-tool.html#Commonusecases.

I would suggest first go to the location where the exe file is instead of typing the whole location of the file and then try the command which I shared with you and check if that works.

Thank you for sharing the details. The issue is that the newer switches such as product filter and clean up were introduced in version 5.x. Kindly update AUSST and try the command again which would fix your issue.

Hi,

I have the same issue with AUSST version 5.2.1.1. (newest) 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\AdobeUpdateServerSetupTool\AdobeUpdateServerSetupTool.exe" --root="C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Adobe" --incremental --cleanup --filterProduct="CHAR"

Without --cleanup its works fine.

Thanks for help.
