Group Policy Preferences to Deploy SCCM Client with SUP


This scenario is for companies that are using SCCM for Software Updates.

Create Group Policy Preferences to detect if SCCM Client is installed by detecting if a Local WSUS Server has been specified via the SCCM Client.  If specified, the Policy will ignore since the SCCM Client is installed.  If not specified, the Policy will add a WSUS/SUP that will install the client.
