The Update List Wizard allows you to add software updates to a new or existing update list. The update list is used to initiate deployments for a set of updates without having to manually select the updates in the set each time a new deployment is created. You must have Create rights on the Configuration items class to create an update list.
|Adding software updates to an existing update list does not add the updates to deployments previously created using the update list.|
The following procedure provides the steps necessary to add software updates to an update list.
To add software updates to an update list
In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Software Updates / Update Repository.
Specify the software updates to be added to the update list. For more information, see How to Find Software Updates in Configuration Manager.
Right-click the highlighted software updates, and then click Update List to open the Update List Wizard.
Follow the steps in the wizard to add software updates to the update list.
When the Update List Wizard completes, the update list displays in the Update Lists console tree node. The Refresh action might be needed on the node for new update lists to display.
Note To modify the properties for an update list, right-click the update list in the Update Lists node and then click Properties.
