SCCM 2012 Software Updates do not install

August 25th, 2014

In SCCM 2012 you may come across the situation when you crate a Software Update package but it does not install. You may check DP, policy, client and you see it is detected but is still not deployed.

Have a look at your package size specifically the number of updates. Exactly like for application each Software Update has it’s maximum runtime which is unmanageable in SCCM 2007 and can be changed in SCCM 2012 R2 (10 minutes by default). The total runtime for the package is a sum of maximum runtimes for every individual Software Update. If this sum exceeds 24 hours your package will never run because SCCM believes there is no window to run it.

Split up your package in several smaller packages and it will work.
