When Upgrading Patch Management from 6.1 to 6.2 you may want to upgrade your NS server and then upgrade your Software Update Agents on your client machines at a later time.

This will work as long as you continue to import 6.1 PMImport updates instead 6.2 PMImport updates.

In order to do this, change your Patch Management configuration under Configuration -> Solution Settings ->Software Management ->Patch Management ->Server Settings ->Import Microsoft Software Management Resource.

Make note of the current URL and save it somewhere. Then put the old 6.1 URL in 

When you upgrade your clients, go ahead and change this again, putting in the 6.2 PMimport URL and you'll be set to go!

In other words, if you have upgraded from PM 6.1 to 6.2 and realized that PM for Windows requires Notification Server 6.0 SP3 R2 or later? Sending the patches on 6.1 format to software update agents with version 6.1 until the software update agents is upgraded on the clients?
