SCCM Patch Deployment Severity and Update Classifications RRS feed

  • SCCM 2012 SP1

    I'm a little confused by MSFT terminology http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824684/en-us versus terminology used in setting up an automatic deployment.  Let's use Lync 2010 as an example.  I wish to deploy Lync 2010 updates outside of our regular patching via SCCM as I don't have Update Classification None set so I don't capture a whole bunch on non-essential patches.

    When I look at current Lync client update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2815347  I don't see the classification MSFT used on their terminology page so not 100% know how to target it.  It indicates its an UPDATE package but I don't see a SEVERITY level assigned.  So if I use the following search criteria would this work?

    Date released:  Last 3 months

    Product:  Microsoft Lync 2010

    Severity: None

    Update Classification:  Updates

  • Severity is only used if the update is a security update; no other classifications use severity.

    I would just remove the Classification and try it that way. I did

    Date released: Last 3 months

    Product: Microsoft Lync 2010

    then just match up the KB article

  • Good thanks but for the Product I want to automate this so if I match up the KB article it won't cycle properly each month.
