SCCM Software Deployment Question
Posted on 2010-09-22
We would like to acomplish the following with SCCM.
We want to remove the number of agents/clients/software that are pre-staged in our Ghost images.
The goal is to keep them as light as possible so that when they gets installed and moved to their computer collection within SCCM the software that is assigned to these collection will get installed to them.
So far we have been pushing some software like Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash, etc...
The way that the software has been installed has been with a new package and new advertisement that target computer collections finally a deadline has been created.
Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.3.2 - Assigned to the following collections
Deadline - 02/08/10
Then a different package for Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.3.3 which was assigned to the same collections in order to deploy the new software
Deadline - 03/10/10
Same with Flash Player and pretty much with all the other applications.
Here are my questions:
1.) If a new computer is introduced to the computer collection what is going to happen according the scenarion that I have mentioned above?
2.) Does someone have any suggestions to improve this process in order to acomplish what we would like to do. Once again the idea is to have very light image that will be upgraded with SCCM.
Thank you in advance.
