Stop IOS from updating

I am trying to stop users on IOS devices from getting the update message on their devices. I have seen posts in the past that show if you setup a destination file with names mesu.apple.com and appldnld.apple.com, add it to an acl and apply it to a user role it would stop it from happening. We are running 6.3.1.14. So far that scenario doesn't work. I know in 6.4 you can use DPI but we are not ready to upgrade to 6.4 yet. Has anybody gotten this scenario to work?

Re: Stop IOS from updating

What controller are you using ?
Do you have DNS query enabled on your controller ?
Thank you

Re: Stop IOS from updating

It's a losing battle to stop the notification as it comes via APNS. Some
type of MDM would be the proper solution.

Spoiler
Using 7210 and 7240 controllers.Not sure about the DNS Querybeing enabled

Re: Stop IOS from updating

Try to ping something aruba.brightcloud.com from the controller CLI and see if it works.

If not you will need to execute this from CLI and it requires a reboot to take effect:
ip domain lookup
ip domain-name .
ip name-server






Thanks
