The Deploy Software Updates Wizard in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 allows you to create a software update deployment that deploys software updates to clients in the target collection. Software updates can be deployed to Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 clients in the hierarchy if the updates are compatible with the clients. Each software update contains the Deployable to SMS 2003 property. Only the software updates that have a value of Yes for this property can be deployed to SMS 2003 clients. When software updates are selected for deployment and at least one update is not deployable to SMS 2003 clients, the option to deploy software updates to SMS 2003 clients is not available.

When a software update deployment that targets SMS 2003 clients is created or modified, clients receive the policy on their next machine policy cycle, and the updates are available for installation after the configured start time.
