Need help understanding the software update based client push method RRS feed

  • Question

  • How does this work exactly?

    I know that the GPO needs to be configured to point the systems to the SUP (which I have done), but how and when will the systems receive the SCCM client via windows update?

    How will I know that it is actually working via the software update method? 

    Will all SCCM client deployment methods be recorded in the ccmsetup.log (GPO method, software update method, collection client push method, site-wide client push method, etc)?

    Also, I read that using the Software Based Client Push method requires that the Configure Automatic Updates policy be enabled (https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/71e03207-6608-4d32-97ee-0f69de54d090/client-push-vs-software-updatebased-client-installation?forum=configmgrsetup), but I have disabled per Jason Sandys' blog article here that is quite awesome: http://blog.configmgrftw.com/software-updates-management-and-group-policy-for-configmgr-cont/

    Therefore I am guessing that even though the Software Update Based Client Push has been enabled it will not work because I disabled the Configure Automatic Updates policy?

    So here are all my questions in a nice neat fashion:

    1. How and when will the systems receive the SCCM client via the Software Update Based Client Push method?
    2. Will all SCCM client deployment methods be recorded in the ccmsetup.log (GPO method, software update method, collection client push method, site-wide client push method, etc)?
    3. If the Configure Automatic Updates policy has been disabled using a Domain level GPO, will this preclude the SCCM client from being installed on systems using the Software Update Based Client method?

    Thanks everyone
