Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

Software updates in Configuration Manager 2007 displays different icons for objects (software updates, update lists, deployment templates, deployments, and deployment packages) and the state of the object. This provides an easy way to determine the state of an object by the icon displayed in the Configuration Manager console. The following table groups the icons by software updates object and provides the icons, the icon names, and icon descriptions.

Software Update Icons

There are four different colors for the icons used for software updates. The icons can also contain a lock indicating that the software updates metadata was synchronized at a site server higher in the Configuration Manager hierarchy, usually the central site. The properties for locked software updates cannot be modified.
