Automatic Deployment Rule - windows update policies RRS feed

  • Question

  • After creating an Automatic Deployment Rule and subsequent Deployment Package, are the windows update policies modified only for the computers in the targeted collection ? Or are the windows update policies modified for all SCCM 2012 clients, even though they are not in the targeted collection ?

  • Windows Update settings are configured using a local group policy set by the ConfigMgr agent when an active SUP exists in a primary site -- update deployments do not factor into this or have any impact upon this at all. Thus, all clients in a primary site with an active SUP will be affected.

    This local group policy simply sets the intranet update server location -- no other policies really make any difference to ConfigMgr's installation of updates.

    Lots more details in these two blog posts (which are for ConfigMgr 2007 but still applicable to 2012):
