How to delete a Software Update Group in SCCM 2012?
Posted on 2014-02-01
I am relatively new to SCCM 2012, although I have successfully updated our company laptops to almost current Patch levels. This month I inadvertantly forgot\missed to create a folder name for the Dec 2013 Patches, and now I have 110 patch files downloaded in the root of SoftwareUpdates instead of neatly in a folder.
Although the group itself is fine, test deployments are successful, and it's actually ready to deploy, I'd like to clean up the folder situation.
I assume I should delete the Software Update Group following this order:
1) Delete deployments (via Deployment tab in Software Update Groups)
2) Delete the Software Update Group (right click, delete)
Will this result in the automatic removal of the content on my primary site server, and my secondary site server (also a DP) too? Or will I need to manually delete the patch files?
Since I cannot see a way to repoint the existing SUP to a new content location, my thought is to delete the existing SUP and recreate a new one, this time properly adding a folder.
Thanks in advance for any advice or recommendations.
