System Center Updates Publisher

System Center Updates Publisher is an add-on application designed to extend the software update management functionality in System Center Essentials 2007. It provides SCE administrators the ability to import, create, and publish custom software update information to their SCE server. By using the Updates Publisher to define a custom software update and publish it to the server, a SCE administrator can begin detecting and deploying that update to the client and server computers in their organization. The System Center Updates Publisher enables SCE administrators to do the following:

  • Create the correct applicability and deployment metadata for an update that can be managed through SCE
  • Import catalogs of updates from third-parties and from within the customer’s own organization
  • Export and share these software updates catalogs
  • Manage custom software updates information
