I am on an old System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1
Site version: 5.00.8239.1000
This was setup many years ago when our clients were Windows 8.1.
In the meanwhile we moved to Windows 10 version 1909 (the most recent supported by our SCCM version).
Yes, we should update SCCM, and I'll do it probably next summer.
I will make separate ADRs (Automatic Deployment Rules) for:
- Windows 10
- Endpoint protection (intelligence and definition)
WSUS synchronization from Microsoft, once per day.
Endpoint protection ADR will be scheduled to deploy to all clients once per day.
The other ADRs will be scheduled once per month at three different times to three different collections (test pool, larger test pool, all).
Now my questions:
1) Can I reuse the same Update Group for more than one ADR? For instance, I plan to have
- ADR: Windows 10 Test (collection: Win10-T1, UG: W10)
- ADR: Windows 10 Test more (collection: Win10-T2, UG: W10)
- ADR: Windows 10 All (collection: Win10-All, UG: W10)
2) I assume that SCCM will be smart enough to update SGs automatically when there's a newer version, like endpoint protection updates. I also assume that SCCM will not update UGs that have not updates without version. Is that correct?
