Deploy Software Updates with the Deployment Workbench for LTI Deployments
In LTI deployments, you can install software updates in the Packages node in the Deployment Workbench for Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating systems using a task sequence step based on the Install Updates Offline task sequence step type. Some of the LTI task sequence templates provided in MDT include the Apply Patches task sequence step, which is based on the Install Updates Offline task sequence step type.
You can control the software updates deployed to the target computers by this method using selection profiles. The Install Updates Offline task sequence step allows you to specify a selection profile so that you can specify which software updates to deploy. If you want to deploy software updates based on multiple selection profiles, create a task sequence step for each selection profile, and then specify the corresponding selection profile in the task sequence step.
For more information on creating selection profiles, see Create a New Selection Profile in the Deployment Workbench.
