In this part of SCCM 2012 and SCCM 1511 blog series, we will describe how to install SCCM 2012 R2 or SCCM 1511 Software Update Point (SUP).
The SUP integrates with Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to provide software updates to Configuration Manager clients.
The PDF file is a 162 pages document that contains all informations to install and configure SCCM 2012 R2 or SCCM 1511 and later (Current Branch).
When you install a SUP at a child Primary Site, configure it to synchronize with the SUP at the Central Administration Site.
But in case your computer is not permanently connected to the Internet or if you haven’t turned it on for a longer period of time, you should consider either forcing an update or manually updating the latest updates.
It is the latter case when you need to download and install the Microsoft Security Essentials Definition Updates.
This is not a mandatory Site System but your need to install a SUP if you’re planning to use SCCM as your patch management platform.
SCCM 2012 SP1 (and thus R2) integrates new features to the Software Update Point that are well documented in this Technet Article. It’s supported to install this role on a Central Administration Site, child Primary Site, stand-alone Primary Site and Secondary Site.
