Approve some patches of a synchronization at the same time

    Frage

  • Hi,

    Can anybody tell me whether it is possible to choose several patches of a synchronization for being approved at the same time?

    In January, I had a synchronization of more than 500 patches (at that time I hadn't a policy for automatically approve my patches) and it's a little hard to approving one by one. For example, I've great blocks of critical patches for windows 7 x64 and it would be desirable approving all at once.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards.

    Create a Custom Update View based on the Product Category(s) and Update Classification(s) of interest.

    Filter for NotApproved and Needed updates.

    Select All and Approve.

    The only way I would know to so this, is to only choose that product and/or classification before you sync and then you could have those patches auto approved. I use a more manual approach to patching. I decline those products not in our environment, approve patches for servers, then approve patches for everything else for the test group. After that, I am done for a week or until testing is completed.
