Problem: Due to multiple Cumulative updates for Configuration Manager 2012 R2, it’s required for us to update all Configuration Manager Clients and also any new machines that gets built will also need to be applied with client update package Solution: Easiest method to achieve this, is to create a folder within existing Configuration Manager Client Package and then copy and paste Update msp file.
By doing this when a new computer gets built or when you deploy Configuration Manager Client to a computer, you will receive updated Configuration Manager client.
This requires that the computer have the client installed and that a Network Access Account is configured for use and has access to the source distribution point.
System Center Configuration Manager has the ability to manage Office 365 client updates by using the Software Update management workflow.
