SMS 2.0 supports software distribution to SMS 1.2 clients. If the software distribution originates at an SMS 1.2 site, SMS 1.2 software distribution is used, and it must be configured and run exactly as it was for SMS 1.2. If an SMS 2.0 site initiates a software distribution that targets SMS 1.2 clients, the SMS 1.2 clients receive the distribution, but SMS 2.0 features are not supported on SMS 1.2 clients. The packages, programs, and advertisements are converted to their SMS 1.2 equivalents in order to be processed by the SMS 1.2 site.
For more information about software distribution to SMS 1.2 clients, see your SMS 1.2 product documentation.
