System Update is not finding any packages on the repository share

[ Edited ]
I'm trying to use a command-line script to install packages from the repository share.
 
Command-line looks like this:
%PROGRAMFILES%\Lenovo\System Update\Tvsu.exe /CM -search R -action DOWNLOAD -repository Z:\MyRepository -includerebootpackages 1,3,4 -noreboot
I tried it using an UNC path also.
 
The baloon message states: "No packages applicable to your system were found."
Although, if I manually launch System Update I'm seeing all the recommended packages I need.
 
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Lenovo\System Update
\Preferences\UserSettings\General\IgnoreLocalLicense" is set to YES.
 
Critical updates have the same behavior - manually I see them, but with the script - I don't.
Scheduled updates also work.
 
Any tips how to get the command-line working?

After checking the log files:
 
1) 2008-03-31 , 02:33:48
 at Tvsu.Engine.Process.HelpCenterIndexRepositoryProcess.PreProcess()
 Message: 'Share name' to use:
z
System Update allows to use the following "Share Name", but:
2008-03-31 , 02:33:48
 at Tvt.UNC_Authenticator.UNCAuthenticator.DriveToUncFormat()
 Message: This local folder doesn't exist
As you can clearly see - it demands to use a folder when referring to a mapped drive. This is not documented.
 
Furthermore:
2008-03-31 , 02:26:37
 at Tvsu.UNC_Authenticator.TvsuUNCAuthenticator.Tvt.UNC_Authenticator.IUncAuthenticator.Connect(String shareName)
 Message: System error while connecting to
\\myservername\SystemUpdat
As far as I can tell - there's a maximum permitted character lengh of 25 or there's a bug that cuts down the last char.
 
Thank you for the link, will try that also.
 
I managed to solve the problem by cutting down the lenght of the UNC for now.

An extra char in the repository path works.

Re: System Update is not finding any packages on the repository share

i too was experiencing this message.

 

I downloaded all of the drivers via Update Retriever (UR) to my network share/repository. I then used System Update (SU) to point to the share to download the files. I received a login prompt (as usual) and then it would give the message that there were no updates for my system.

 

I finally figured out that inside the UR, the default setting for my options were "TEST" and not "ACTIVE". Switching these to ACTIVE in the UR fixed *MOST* of these issues.

 

I am now just having issues where the a few of the updates are not being displayed. I opened up the XML file in the repository and verified the system type was correct for that download (example: video drivers for that model).

 

if i point the SU program to Lenovo for updates, it finds all of the required drivers. 

 

Any suggestions to why it finds some drivers and not others?

Re: System Update is not finding any packages on the repository share

after hours of testing, i believe that i have figured out what is going on. the xml file included with the driver specifically shows xp pro sp1 and sp2 support but doesn't mention sp3 which we are running. if i remove sp3, it finds the driver... if i reapply sp3, the driver is no longer available in the list.

 

is there anyone from lenovo available to comment on this at all?

Welcome to the forum!

There are a few Lenovo employees roaming around in here helping out, but this is not an official support channel.
