Typically, three operational scenarios are available for software updates in Configuration Manager 2007:

  • Phased deployment : Refers to a mandatory deployment that is created as part of a routine administrative task and usually contains software updates that are not of an urgent nature and must be installed on client computers by a configured future deadline.

  • Expedited deployment : Refers to a mandatory deployment that is created unexpectedly and usually contains software updates that fix potential vulnerabilities (zero-day exploit) and must be deployed to client computers as soon as possible.

  • Optional deployment : Refers to a deployment that contains optional software updates that might or might not be required on client computers and are not urgent in nature.
