Stage Update Content

Here is the possible option to select the automatic download option. When you stage the content of the HP catalog update, all updates in the selected categories are automatically downloaded to your top-level software update point.

When you deploy updates that have staged content, you don’t have to download them through the SCCM console first. I selected Do not stage content, synchronize for scanning only (as this a recommended option).

  • I selected option – Do not stage content synchronize for scanning only.
  • I don’t recommend this option – Select the option – Stage the content for selected categories automatically.
  • Click the Next button to continue.

NOTE! – Staging software update content may cause a large amount of data to be downloaded to your software update point.
