SCCM 2012 ADR Wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • New to SCCM2012, Setting  up Endpoint Protection, Trying to setup a ADR with the Wizard, I'm at the point where it is wanting to create a "Deployment Package". What exactly does this do? It wants a "Package Source". Is this something I should have or is it something I'm creating?

    Thanks

    Pat

  • Deployment packages do hold the update binaries. You either can select an existing one or create a new one. You have to sepcify an existing (but empty) folder (unc) when creating a new one.

  • A deployment package is the set of files that will  be ultimately deployed to the clients. In the case of SCEP it will be the definition files for the av product. 

    Create a package source. This will be source location where the files are held. Once created they will be distributed to your distribution points. The DP's are where the client will get the content from - rather than the package source. 

    Subsequent ADR runs will add the content to the package source and update the content to the DP's for you.
