I am new to SCCM and recently took over a system that has been partially configured. I am trying to understand the "best practice" for deploying applications. I think we have an issue with one of our Device Collections that contains various software (about 10 different products). Some of the software is marked as available and the remaining is marked as required. For the required software, I think we have an issue when the software is updated on the computer before we update the version in the Device Collection. How does SCCM handle this scenario? For example, I have Java 7 Update 21 in this Device Collection and a system has Java 7 Update 25 installed. In the event viewer I see an application error of "Product: Java 7 Update 21 -- A newer version of Java is already installed" and in SCCM I have Error Code 0x643 (1603), Fatal error during installation."

 

Is there a setting in SCCM to only attempt to install this required software if it is lower than SCCM's version or does not exist?

 

Is there another way I should be deploying the required software? Also, I want the software to re-install if it is removed somehow from the system.

That would be supercedence. You would have to specify in your java update 21 app that your newer java 27 update supercedes it.

 

 

Also, I want the software to re-install if it is removed somehow from the system.

If it is required deployment and you have a detection method configured properly then the app will always install automatically if it does not detect itself on a system. Same go's for available deployment but this is not automated, the user has to retrieve it first from the app catalog....if it is already installed on the system it wont install again.
