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 must be configured before deploying updates to clients. Several additional steps should also be considered when planning for a deployment. After Configuration Manager is installed, the dependent components for software updates must be installed and configured, an active software update point must be enabled and configured, synchronization must occur between the software update point and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), clients must scan for software updates compliance, software updates must be selected for deployment, and finally the deployment can be created and sent to clients.

The following flowchart provides a high level visual workflow for these steps, and the links at the end of this document provide detailed information about each process. For a complete list of the steps shown in this workflow and links to the detailed information about each step, see the Administrator Checklists for Software Updates.
