SCCM 2007 - Staging WSUS updates
Posted on 2012-09-12
I have to come up with the best practise method of installing WSUS updates via SCCM.
So far I have set up Deployment templates for Office, Windows 7, and other software packages.
However, I am a bit confused by the way SCCM installs updates - it seems the deadline set in the SUP basically sets the start time for the updates to be installed. Maybe I am missing something, but doesn't this mean that all clients are going to be connecting to the server at once to pull the updates down?
Is there any way to get it to run like regular WSUS where the updates are slowly deployed out one by one in the background? I typically set a month deadline and by the time the month is up most of the updates have been installed.
