when deploying an operating system or patch to a client what are the steps which happen in the back ground.

1. Management point communicates with the client and let's it know it is going to start a deployment job.

2. Os or software update is sent from the distribution point and then to the management point who then sends it to the client. Or management point tells the distribution point to directly send the os or software update to the client. (And all communication is managemed by BITS and either http or https.

3. Once the os or software update has been deployed then the distribution point reports back to the management point on the results.

Do I have the steps right ? this is a design question.

Actually client initiates the policy pull

2. Os or software update is sent from the distribution point and then to the management point who then sends it to the client. Or management point tells the distribution point to directly send the os or software update to the client. (And all communication is managemed by BITS and either http or https.

Nothing is sent. It is requested. This should make it clearer.

The process is

scanning
evaluation
installation

Client pulls down its policy from the MP. The client in some later steps requests the location of the patches etc from the MP. MP passes on the location of this on DPs.


3. Once the os or software update has been deployed then the distribution point reports back to the management point on the results.


Clients report the status. DP is just a file store.


Actually as it will be clear from the link I posted, it is a very detailed and complex process.
