Updating the source paths of Windows Installer applications
You can update the source paths of Windows Installer applications with resilient source paths. The updated source paths point to the package servers that you designate. If an application needs modification or repair, Windows Installer can access the needed installation file from one of these servers.
You can use a policy or a task to perform resilient source path updates of Windows Installer applications on managed computers.
You can also create a Source Path Update task from a software resource in the Software Catalog. If you create the task from a software resource, you select the computers that the task applies to and the task runs immediately.
(Optional, task only) Change the task settings.
Every task inherits the default settings that control how it runs. You can override the default settings for a particular task.
You cannot change the settings for a Source Path Update policy.
(Task only) Schedule the task and select the delivery destinations.
Your options for scheduling the task are as follows:
Run the task now.
This option runs the task as soon as possible, unless it must wait for a maintenance window.
This additional step is not necessary for the policy because you schedule it as part of its configuration.

This report lists the computers that had Windows Installer applications with inaccessible source paths during the most recent scan. Use this report to identify the changes that you need to make to resolve inaccessible source path problems. This report is one of the Application Management reports that is listed under the Software reports.
