Description

This task updates download and action cache settings whose defaults are no longer appropriate for today's large patches.

  • _BESClient_Download_PreCacheStageDiskLimitMB
    • Default value is 250MB, most Windows rollups will not precache with this value.  This task sets the value to 6GB to accomodate up to Win10 feature updates.
  • _BESClient_Download_NormalStageDiskLimitMB
    • Default value is 2GB, feature updates and service packs will not attempt to download with this value.  This task sets the value to 6GB to accomodate up to Win10 feature updates.
  • _BESGather_Download_CacheLimitMB
    • This is a relay and root server setting, default value of 1GB will not persistently store many downloads, requiring repeated redownloads of the same file.  This task sets the root server to 100GB, and relays to 20GB if there is enough free space.  Otherwise, dynamically sets the cache value to half of the free disk space.
  • _BESClient_Download_MinimumDiskFreeMB
    • Default 20MB, the client will prevent downloads if there is less than 20MB of free space.  This task sets the value to 500MB, this is to allow enough overhead space for the client to download a rollup patch with space left to execute the patch.
