Managing service packs
A service pack is a collection of updates, patches or enhancements to a software program delivered in the form of a single installable package.
What can I do with a Service Pack?
You can deploy a service pack to devices affected by it. All files from the service pack are downloaded and installed on the respective devices .
What does the SP1, SP2, SP3, and so on stand for?
In a software life cycle several service packs can be released to fix problems and also add new features. Service packs are usually numbered to indicate the version. SP1 (=Service Pack 1) is the first service pack for a software program.
What does the icon next to a Service Pack stand for?
Each service pack has an icon next to it to indicate its current status:
- green: The service pack was downloaded successfully.
- yellow: At least one file of the service pack was downloaded successfully, but there are still files that haven't been downloaded yet.
- red: The download of the service pack failed.
- gray: No file of the service pack was downloaded yet.
