If a package is updated on the source directly (UNC share, local directory on the Notification Server) when would the package be updated?
Answer The Package Distribution Point Update Schedule that runs every 10 minutes executes the following SQL query:
SELECT vItem.Guid FROM SWDPackage JOIN vItem ON vItem.Guid = SWDPackage.PackageId AND SWDPackage._Latest = 1 WHERE DistPointsLastUpdated IS NULL OR vItem.ModifiedDate > SWDPackage.DistPointsLastUpdated
As you can see, we check for packages that have not been updated yet (DistPointsLastUpdated IS NULL) or packages that have been modified on the console, s
o if a package source is modified without updating the Software Delivery package, this will not be updated for Package Server and Client before the nightly snapshots execution ('Package Refresh' schedule).
