Patch deployment and installation behavior question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a new Software Update Group to deploy a revised KB today that didn't require a reboot.  The deployment was set to be available ASAP and install ASAP.  I set a maintenance window of 1:30PM on the collections that received the deployment.  When I ran a report, to verify the patch status, prior to that start of the maintenance window I saw that the patch had already installed.

    Does this behavior change depending on the patch?  I have other collections that I do monthly updating to, this same way, and they don't install patches until the start of the maintenance window I believe.  Should I be using a specific time for my deadlines, or should I be using ASAP?  I don't want servers sitting in a 1/2 installed but yet to be rebooted state for any period of time.

  • What options do you have selected for the Deadline Behavior?
