SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a maintenance window for a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 collection.
  • You create a new software update deployment that has a start time that is within the maintenance window of the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 collection.
  • You modify any property of the deployment before the maintenance window starts.
In this scenario, the deployment operation cannot be performed on the clients that are members of the collection during the timeframe of the maintenance window. The deployment operation cannot be performed until the deployment reevaluation is finished.
