Software updates to be included in Configuration Manager 2007 Network Access Protection (NAP) evaluation are not necessarily evaluated as soon as the client receives the Configuration Manager NAP policy, but at the effective date configured in the policy. The effective date is the time the NAP policy actually becomes active, and can be configured for "As soon as possible" or a specified date and time.

On the effective date, the client will include the selected software update when evaluating its statement of health. The effective date is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

You can set the effective date in the following places:

  • When creating a Configuration Manager 2007 NAP policy with the New Policies Wizard.

  • When creating a software deployment with the Deploy Software Update Wizard.

  • Modifying a Configuration Manager 2007 NAP policy.

  • Modifying the properties of a software update in the update repository.

  • Modifying the properties of a software update in a software update deployment package.

  • Modifying the properties of a software update in a software update deployment.

  • Additionally, if you have created software updates search folders, you can modify the properties of software updates that are displayed in the search folders.
