SP1 to R2 Client Upgrade via SUP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Currently planning an upgrade to R2.  We currently only deploy clients via SUP (SP1) then update clients to the CU by using SCUP.  A WMI filter then disables Windows Updates for clients where the installed version of the client is >5.  This is to prevent auto updates interfering with software updates delivered by CM.

    I am planning to roll out the R2 upgrade also via SUP by amending the WMI filter so that it looks for clients less than the R2 version, which will re-enable automatic updates and pull down the new client.

    I am aware that I could also use the automatic client upgrade option, but where servers have maintenance windows I could see this never running during a MW.

    Any comments/thoughts on this approach?
