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 update deployment templates in Configuration Manager 2007 store many of the deployment properties that might not change from deployment to deployment. Templates auto-populate these settings when used to initiate a deployment. Use the following procedure to modify an existing deployment template.

To modify a deployment template

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Software Updates / Deployment Templates.

  2. In the Deployment Templates pane, right-click the desired deployment template and then click Properties.

  3. In the Deployment Templates Properties dialog box, the following information can be modified:

    • Name and description: Specifies the name and description of the deployment template.

    • Collection: Specifies the collection that is targeted for the software update deployment. Templates can be created without a collection so that one deployment template can be used during a phased deployment where collections change over time.

    • Display/Time Settings: Specifies whether display notification are displayed on client computers, whether a client evaluates the deployment schedule based on local time or UTC, and the duration setting that is used to set the default deadline time in a deployment.

    • Restart Settings: Specifies the system restart behavior when a software update installs on a client and requires a restart to complete, and specifies whether system restarts are allowed outside of configured maintenance windows.

    • SMS 2003 Settings: Provides the option to deploy software updates to Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 clients.

      noteNote
      Only software updates with a value of Yes in the Deployable to SMS 2003 setting can be deployed to SMS 2003 clients.

    • Event Generation: Specifies whether to disable Microsoft Operations Manager alerts during software update installation and whether an Operation Manager alert is created when a software update installations fails.

    • Download Settings: Specifies the behavior for software update installation when clients are within a "slow or unreliable" network boundary and when clients are within the boundaries of a protected distribution point that does not contain the software update.

    • Security: Specifies the class and instance security for the deployment template object.
