  • No. However, ADRs don't actually deploy updates. ADRs create/update other objects including Software Update Groups, Software Update Deployments, and Software Update Packages. Thus, if you want a specific set of updates deployed to another collection, simply create an additional deployment on that software update group.

  • Hi, there is a workaround:

    - put the desired collections in a wrapper (parent) collection

    - deploy the ADR on this wrapper collection

    - possible configuration:

    -- you set the the ADR's dead line once for all chils collections in this ADR, before the first maintenance window.

    -- you set an own maintenance windows for each child collection separately.

    -- after the dead line is reached, the deployed software (i.e. software updates) are shown in software center with status "past due - will be installed"

    -- after the collection's maintenance window is reached, the software will be downloaded and installed.
