ADR Gotcha – ADR only fires from the site server

Very short and (not so) sweet post with a word of warning on ADRs.

CM2012 SP1 R2

I wanted to set up and Automatic Deployment Rule to select a bunch of updates and automatically download and set up my Software Update Group. In my client’s environment the only box with internet access belongs to the SUP. Unfortunately, if you want your ADR to carry out the tasks above then you will need to ensure your Primary Site Server has access to the internet as well.

An ADR will always fire from the Primary Site Server and without internet access, the ADR will fail to download any updates.

You’ve been warned!
