SCCM Client after upgrade to SCCM 1511 (5.00.8325.1000) RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading our environment to SCCM 1511, I need to upgrade our clients. I have a question as to how the clients find the new installation. If I enable automatic site wide client push installation. How will the client know to upgrade? would it be better to Enable software Update installation or try some other method like building a package or application. What I am trying to avoid is killing our network with traffic. 



    Thank you appreciate any help in understanding this

  • Client upgrade has nothing to do with client push. You can however use client auto-upgrade: http://configmgrblog.com/2012/12/03/how-to-update-configmgr-clients-automatically-in-sp1/

    The feature set has grown a little since 2012 but is basically the same. You set a number of days to spread the clients out over. Thus, if you are worried about the network (the package is only about 200MB though) simply spread the upgrade out over a longer duration, like 14 or 30 days (or whatever you think is appropriate).

  • There are several ways to upgrade to client as you already mentioned (plus automatic client upgrade which is not the same as push).
    Your question cannot be answered without knowing details about your network environment, but auto client upgrade usually does not hammer WAN links.
