Deploying Software Updates Using Configuration Manager

In this post we will see deploying software updates using configuration manager 2012. Software updates in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager provides a set of tools and resources that can help manage the complex task of tracking and applying software updates to client computers in the enterprise.

In Part 1 we saw the installation of Active Directory Domain Services. In Part 2 we created the AD container and delegated the permissions on it. In Part 3 we installed pre-requisites for SCCM server. In Part 4 we installed SQL server, updated the service pack and cumulative update patch. In Part 5 we installed WSUS server role, Configured the firewall to add exceptions to allow the Client Push, Open the SQL ports 1433 and 4022. In Part 6 we installed the SCCM 2012. In Part 7 we saw how to configure Discovery and Boundaries. In Part 8 we installed few site system roles. In Part9 we created and configured custom client device settings, user device settings and deployed configuration manager client agent.

 

Before we deploy the software updates to our systems, we need to update the Intranet Microsoft update service location by creating a policy and linking it to our domain. We will create a separate policy named “Windows Update Policy”.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 1

From the Domain Controller, Open Group Policy Management Console. Lets create a GPO and link it to Domain. The name of the policy is Windows Update Policy. Right Click the policy and edit.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 2

From the Group Policy Management Editor, Navigate to Computer Configuration, Policies, Administrative templates, Windows Components, windows update.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 3

Double click the setting “Specify Intranet Microsoft Update Service Location“. Click Enabled and in the options provide the Server name with HTTP as prefix for both intranet update service and intranet statistics server.

Note : During the configuration of WSUS if you had selected “Create a windows SUS 3.0 SP2 Website” then provide the name of SCCM server along with port number.
For example : http://Server.domain.com : 8530.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 4

Click on the setting Configure Automatic Updates, Enable the setting by clicking on Enabled. Under Options choose Auto Download and Schedule the Install under configure automatic updating. Schedule the installation of updates Everyday at 14:00 (You can choose your own schedule time).

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 5

Now lets create a collection of computers to which we can deploy the updates. In our lab we have a single computer named CLIENT.PRAJWAL.LOCAL, we will create a Device collection and add all windows 7 computers to the device collection.

To create a Device Collection, Right Click Device Collections and Create Device Collection.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 8

Click on Browse and Select All Systems as Limiting collection.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 9

We will add a Query Rule to group the computers into a collection. Based on this Query the windows 7 computers will be added to the collection.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 11

In the Query Rule Properties, Name the query as “Windows 7 Query“. Let the Resource class be System Resource. Click Edit Query Statement.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 33

We will download the updates and store it in a folder. Select all the Updates from Windows 7 Software Updates and Right Click and click download. In the Download Software Updates Wizard we will create a deployment package. A software update deployment package is the vehicle used to download software updates to a network shared folder, and copy the software update source files to the content library on site servers and on distribution points that are defined in the deployment.

Creating a Deployment Package – Provide a name to the deployment package. We will name it as Windows 7 Update Deployment Package. Now we need to store the updates in a folder so i have created a folder on other drive called Updates. we will use this folder to store all the updates. Inside the Updates folder we will create another folder called Win7 to store only windows updates. Click Next.

Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 10 Snap 35

Click on Add and select your Distribution Point. Click Next.

Hi Prajwal. I like reading all your posts as they are very informative. However, my understanding is that the only group policy setting to configure is the ‘Configure Automatic Updates’ set to ‘disabled’. The SCCM client should configure the rest for you. On a client, run ‘gpupdate /h ‘ and then open that file. You’ll see that any other necessary settings are automatically configured and will appear to be set by “local group policy”.

Good Day Sir! I would like to inquire if it is possible to update my sccm clients to update thru microsoft update not in my distribution point server? This is my scenario: I have remote clients which is connected to my SCCM 2012 SP2 server thru vpn connection. I would like to set ADR to those client to update without using my Distribution Point but instead they will go to microsoft website update. In short I want SCCM to trigger the update to the client but the client will get it to microsoft website. I hope that I explain it… Read more »

Does this scheme acts on the client side using standard Windows Update service in the down level?
What if clent WU service forced to Disabled?

Software not getting download – Error_ Failed To Download Content_ The Processing is Not In Background Processing Mode. related .cab file can download without any issue.

Anusha Raveendran

Hi Prajwal,

This might be a real dumb question. I’m new to SCCM and would like to know if the patching could be done in SCCM 2012 without group policy?

Prajwal Desai

Group policy doesn’t come into picture when you are deploying updates via SCCM. You can disable the configure windows updates settings and let SCCM take care of windows deployment.

Sharda Giri

How to get the report and to see how many machines got updated with latest patch…In my case am generating the report called Enforcement state for deployment…but in this report every month i will get some 100 machines with enforcement state unknown….can you let me know what is this enforcement state mean and will this machines get update automatic or so we need to go and update one by one manually…or is there any other report where i can get compliance report……

Hi Praveen, could you also post your question here – http://prajwaldesai.com/community

Aleksey Gulynin

Hi, Prajwal!
I have all adjusted as it’s written in article, except I did not adjust a group policy.
Such problem: I cant deploy updatings on a collection.
All the clients were reporting a status of “unknown” for all the updates. Did you have a similar problem sometime or can you advise something?
Thanks in advance

Prajwal Desai

Hi, the group policy is not required. SCCM will take care of deploying updates. You can refer this post – http://prajwaldesai.com/deploy-software-updates-using-sccm-2012-r2/

IH8CalSpa .

FYI… You don’t need a group policy for this. The sccm client will tell the remote computer where windows updates are coming from. You don’t even need to configure a patch time. You do that via a maintenance window.

Darla S

Hi Prajwal.

This is a wonderful post and very helpful. The only question I have is where/how can I see the listing of clients that were successfully updated by given update push?

Thanks.
Darla

Stephen Daugherty

You may have answered this on already but i’m confused as to why you need to configure the GPO. It seems if you are Deploying the updates to the machine then why does it need to look at WSUS for updates?

Prajwal Desai

Hi Stephen, the WSUS GPO is not required if you are using SCCM to deploy updates. While I was creating the post I had tested the updates deployment keeping WSUS GPO in place and it had worked fine.

I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this site.

Hi, Great articles. Really usefull information. I’ve been following your articles whenever I got stuck in my SCCM 2012 R2 deployment. There is one thing that I could not figure it out though. I hope you have the answer for me and I’ll greatly appreciate it if you can let me know. Regarding the WSUS management… My WSUS deployments working fine. I’ve already approuved all of the required updates in my domain. When I deploy a new computer in domain, I install right away all of the approuved updates on it.

Hi Prajwal,

i would like to know how to remove old updates ( Present from year 2010 are many update lists) on the all software updates folder which are marked as x (Black color), i am not able to see delete option if i right click. i can filter as expired update with this x Mark , but how to delete & recommended to delete,..?

But usually i will go to wsus console to clean old updates by update & clean wizard ,

Best regards,
Arshad
