Answers

  • Hello

    You can use this procedure

    1.  Open the Windows Update Services MMC
      
    2.  Select the All Updates View
    Set the display to show the Approval status of 'Any except Declined' with a Status of 'Any'. Click Refresh.
      
    3.  Display the Supercedence Column
    Right-click the column headers and select Supercedence.
      
    4.  Sort by Supercedence
    Left-click on the Supercedece Column.
     
    5.  Select and Decline the Superceded Updates
    The updates to be declined have one of two particular flowchart symbols for their updates pictured in the attached image.
    Select the correct updates and Decline them by either right-clicking the selected updates and clicking decline or by pressing the decline button in the action pane.
      
    6.  Run the Server Cleanup Wizard
    Make sure you have all options selected in the wizard and let it run.
    It will delete the files from the declined updates.
      
    7.  OPTIONAL: Automatic Approval Options
    In the automatic approval options, under the advanced tab, there is an option to automatically approve update revisions
    for previously approved updates and subsequentially decline the now expired updates. I suggest you select them.

    Best regards
