  • Hi,

    Which version of SCCM are you using? If you are using 1906 or newer, you can try to automate it by enabling the WSUS Maintenance options in the Software Update Point configuration of your top-level site. In addition, I hope the following guide is helpful to you.

  • There are no best practices for this or any other activities as that implies there is one, universal truth and process that truly works best for every situation, scenario, and organization. If that were true, there wouldn't be any issues in the first place.

    You need to do what works for you (i.e, meets your requirements), technically works, and is supported. Blindly following what others tell yo u to do because they say its "best" is a recipe for disaster.
