Distribute Service Pack & Patches in a single package RRS feed

  • Question

  • Team,

    I need to Distribute Service packs and MS Pathes in Single Package to 500 Systems (Servers/Workstation). Is there any way to do this.

  • If you run through the DSUW, does it not allow you to select both types of updates? I would assume that it would, though not sure I've ever heard of anyone doing so. Service Pack updates usually require a reboot, and often include updates that you'd want to deploy.

    So I'd have two deployments, one with the service pack, and then another one to send out updates that might be applicable after the service pack has been installed.

  • You could set everything up in ITMU on SMS so it should install the Service Pack, restart, scan and then deliver all the patches that are necessary.  That problem is that if a machine doesn't need the patch and you have it deployed via a package then the Patch will start and then error out that it isn't needed and then move to the next one.  This will create a long patch time and you can hope that you have installed that patches in the right order.  Using ITMU you just select what you want and let SMS do all the logic for you.  Is there a reason why you don't use ITMU
