ADR and software update group deployments RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

       I can right click on an ADR and select 'Add deployment'.

      That ADR has an assoicated software update group. I can right click that software update group and select 'Deploy'.

      What's the difference between the two please?

    Thanks

  • Each time the ADR runs, the ADR deployment will be updated (deadlines and available time etc). When you use the manual deployment by right clicking on the existing software update group and creating a deployment, that deployment won't be updated.

  • Well, you don't really forget about it, but the ADR will take care of creating or updating the deployments on the referenced update group for you (all those that you didn't manually create on the update group itself that it as noted by Nick).

  • Next time the ADR evaluates, it should show up.

  • So to deploy an ADR to a new collection, you use only 'Add deployment' on the ADR and forget about the software group associated with that ADR?
