SCCM 2007 – Patch Client to R3 During OSD

I recently wanted to use SCCM 2007’s R3 Power Features, and needed to update a few clients to the latest agent version. Turns out, it’s easy to have the patch added during OSD.

The Process

First, we need to find the Package ID of the SCCM R3 client patch.

  1. Open SCCM, navigate to Packages, and search for “Configuration Manager”. Note the Package ID.
  2. Next, open a deploy task sequence and select the ‘Setup Windows and ConfigMgr” action. Insert the following code into the “Installation Properties” box. Replace <PackageID> with the ID noted from step 1:
    PATCH="C:\_SMSTaskSequence\OSD\<PackageID>\i386\hotfix\KB977384\sccm2007ac-sp2-kb977384-x86-enu.msp"

Now, your clients will be patched on deployment! Enjoy.
