The Update Repository console tree node and subnodes in the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 console are where all of the synchronized software updates are located. As the console tree node is expanded, the Search Folders, update classifications, vendors, and product subnodes are displayed. You can navigate to the Update Repository console tree node and subnodes as follows: System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Software Updates / Update Repository.

Before information is available in any of the Update Repository console tree nodes, the following steps must be taken:

  1. Enable the Software Updates Client Agent (enabled by default).

  2. Enable and configure the active software update point.

  3. Specify at least one update classification, product, and language; and initiate update synchronization. Depending on how many updates are synchronized, this process might take a long time to complete.

For details about configuring software updates, see Administrator Checklist: Configuring Software Updates.

After you click the Update Repository console tree node or subnodes, the Configuration Manager console contains the following elements:
