Adobe is introducing Flash Player Background Updater for Microsoft Windows in Flash Player version 11.2.
This new update mechanism silently updates Windows computers with the latest Adobe Flash Player patches and updates, eliminating the need for users to perform these updates themselves.
After that, the next update check that will cause actual network (or Internet) traffic will be deferred by at least 24 hours.
To enable Adobe Flash Player Background Updater, simply leave Install updates automatically when available (recommended) selected (this is the default option) and click Done (see Figure 1).
Once creating a local mirror you can add the option Silent Auto Update Server Domain=server.to your file which tells your Flash Player Update Service access the update files via your web server rather than the internet directly. CFG file for testing looks like this but once working I would remove the Verbose Loging option to reduce the log file size.
The settings below turn off gui updates and enable silent updates: Then my other issue was how to I keep my mirror synced with Adobes so I created a Shell Script to do it for me in a daily cron job.
” echo “=O====== $(date) ========” &1 if [ -d $DESTINATION/pub/flashplayer/update/current/sau/$VERSION/xml ]; then echo ‘Skipping destination folder structure creation.’ else echo ‘Creating destination folder structure.’ sudo mkdir -v $DESTINATION/pub/ I have been testing the script and am pleased to see it works well.
The log file that the script creates looks much like the for ease of reading.
