Automatic clients upgrade and Maintenance Windows (only software updates) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi to all,

    after the pilot phase for the agents upgrade due to 1702 hotfix Rollup, I would like to extend the automatic upgrade, within 5 days, in all customer infrastructure agents.

    I know the agent upgrade will honor the maintenance windows set in collections, but if I have in place only maintenance windows regarding the software updates, will the agent upgrade procedures take care of them?

    Any further help (or suggestion) will be higly appreciated, thanks in advance.

  • Software Update maintenance windows are for software updates only and have nothing to do with normal software distribution or client agent upgrades thus the upgrade will simply happen at anytime within the interval you specify.

  • Hi,

    "Client upgrades honor any Configuration Manager maintenance windows you have configured." See the details:

  • Hi Yuxiang,

    I supposed the sentence "any Configuration Manager maintenance windows" is regarding the fact that you can have set more than one maintenance window (for example in different collection).

    Today I extended the automatic upgrade, in all customer infrastructure agents, and I can confirm it didn't take care about the "only software update" maintenance windows.

    Thanks anyway for your support.
