  2. In the Software Library workspace, expand Operating Systems, and then click Operating System upgrade packages.

  3. On the Home tab, in the Create group, click Add Operating System Upgrade Package to start the Add Operating System Upgrade Wizard.

    Limit access to the installation source files to prevent unwanted tampering.

  5. On the General page, specify the following information, and then click Next. This information is useful for identification purposes when you have multiple operating system installers.

    • Name: Specify the name of the operating system installer.

    • Version: Specify the version of the operating system installer.

    • Comment: Specify a brief description of the operating system installer.

  6. Complete the wizard.

You can now distribute the operating system installer to the distribution points that are accessed by your deployment task sequences.

Operating system images are distributed to distribution points in the same way as you distribute other content. In most cases, you must distribute the operating system image to at least one distribution point before you deploy the operating system. For the steps to distribute an operating system image, see Distribute content.

Beginning in Gestor de configuração version 1602, you can apply new software updates to the operating system image in your operating system upgrade package. Of course, before you can apply software updates to an upgrade package you must have your software updates infrastructure in place and have successfully synchronized software updates. For more information, see Deploy and manage software updates in System Center Configuration Manager.

You can apply applicable software updates to an upgrade package on a specified schedule. On the schedule that you specify, Gestor de configuração applies the software updates that you select to the operating system upgrade package, and then optionally distributes the updated upgrade package to distribution points. Information about the operating system upgrade package is stored in the site database, including the software updates that were applied at the time of the import. Software updates that have been applied to the upgrade package since it was initially added are also stored in the site database. When you start the wizard to apply software updates to the operating system upgrade package, the wizard retrieves a list of applicable software updates that have not yet been applied to the upgrade package for you to select. Gestor de configuração copies the software updates from the content library on the site server and applies the software updates to the operating system upgrade package.

Use the following procedure to apply software updates to an operating system upgrade package.
