    Is there a way to run VB Scripts or PowerShell scripts before SCCM could install Software updates on a machine.

    There are certain machines in our environment that require some actions to happen before installing Software updates.

    Use the new experimental feature in the Microsoft End Point Configuration Manager 2004 release called “Orchestration Groups’. This is used to call the “Server Groups” historically.

    Pretty straight forward. Gives you an opportunity to run a script before and after software update deployments for a group of devices managed by SCCM.

    Also, remember if the software deployment begins on one device the deployment would also start on the other devices in the ‘Orchestration Group’.

    This is a cool feature with multiple use cases.
