Update content on Distribution Points – allow use of revision N-1 content in Task Sequences
We are supporting companies around the globe out of our Configuration Manager; it goes from Australia to Americas. So, we have all the time someone deploying a machine using the OSD task sequence. But we also have to update content used in the Task Sequence.
If ‘Update Distribution Points’ is started and a new revision is created, the content goes in yellow (in Progress) on all DPs. If you now want to start a Task Sequence, it will fail due to missing content. If some DPs have blackout times, e.g. not allowed to replicate content during daytime, it is even worse, they cannot deploy new machines until next day.
It would be great to have a setting in the task sequence to allow the use of revision N-1 content if it is available on the DP and revision N is in progress.
