    SCUP 2011 best practice

    Rookie

      Are third party patches normally rolled out with the MS patches at the same time, or has there been any conflicts on the clients be rolling out ms patches, flash, java, and adobe updates at the same time with SCCM????

          Typically you pick and choose the patches to publish in the SCUP system. There should be no issue with having multiple vendors of patches being published from the SCUP system.  The VMware data is driven by populating the SCUP system, and then its up to the administrator to publish and patch with that data in their environment.  If there is issues with publishing from SCUP to your environment, please create a support request and supply the publishing logs from the publish event.

            Actually, I am asking if there have been any client issues with accepting so many patches from various venders at the same time???

            Can windows installer handle it?

              The Microsoft installer when used with SCCM should apply one patch at a time so there should not be an issue. We sometimes see Java and Adobe Flash patches with problems, they sometimes require a predeploy reboot to make sure all of the processes are ended.

                Speaking of java.

                 

                Has there been any known issues with deploying the latest patches to JRE 5, 6 and 7.

                Basically, update all 3 versions as they are on the domain workstations.
