The default for every Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 advertisement and software update deployment is to not download software packages and software updates when the client is connected within a slow or unreliable network boundary. This default assumes that you do not want clients downloading content over slow or unreliable network connections, thereby saving network bandwidth.

However, in some scenarios, this default setting might unexpectedly prevent clients from installing the software packages and software updates that you want them to have. Consider changing this default if you want to ensure that clients always install software packages and software updates when requested and if any of the following scenarios apply:

  • Clients are not within a configured boundary for their assigned site because boundaries are not configured correctly or because the clients have been incorrectly assigned.

    In this scenario, clients will never install the software package or software updates. For these clients to install the software package or software update with the default configuration, all boundaries must be configured correctly.

  • Clients are within a boundary that is configured as slow or unreliable, such as a virtual private network (VPN) or wireless network.

    In this scenario, clients will not be able to install the software package or software updates unless their network location changes to a fast and reliable boundary. Alternatively, reconfigure the slow or unreliable boundary to be fast and reliable.

  • Clients have roamed into another site that does not host the content.

    In this scenario, clients will not be able to install the software package or software updates until they return to their assigned site.
