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

Update lists in Configuration Manager 2007 are 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. The following procedure provides the steps necessary to deploy software updates using an update list.

To deploy software updates using an update list

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

  2. Start the Deploy Software Updates Wizard with the specified update list using one of the following methods:

    1. Right-click the desired update list, and then click Deploy Software Updates.

    2. Drag-and-drop the desired update list to a deployment template. The deployment is configured with the settings from the template, and the wizard requests information only about the collection (if not specified in the template), deployment package (if the update is not in an existing package), download location (if the update is not in an existing package), deployment schedule, and NAP effective date (if NAP is enabled).

    3. Drag-and-drop the desired update list to a deployment. The configured settings for the deployment are maintained, and the wizard requests information only about the deployment package (if the update is not in an existing package), download location (if the update is not in an existing package), deployment schedule, and NAP effective date (if NAP is enabled).

  3. Follow the steps in the wizard to create or modify the deployment.

  4. When the Deploy Software Updates Wizard completes, the deployment displays in the Deployment Management node. If a deployment template definition was saved, it displays in the Deployment Templates node. If a deployment package was created, it displays in the Deployment Packages node. The Refresh action might be needed on each node for the objects to display.

noteNote
To modify the properties for a deployment, right-click the deployment in the Deployment Management console tree node, and then click Properties.
