How to deploy MS Software Updates automatically (WSUS) via SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we want to use WSUS combined with SCCM to distribute MS Updates to our client computers.
    What I did so far: I created the Deployment Package under Software Packages (filtered the needed Updates via Search Folder). I distributed the MS Updates to the selected test client computers. So far it worked fine. Updates were installed.
    1.) Is there an option where it is possible to see to how many client computers the MS Updates have been distributed? Now I am only able to see that the Software Updates were distributed to one distribution point.

    2.) Is there a way to see what OS are installed on the client computers? Since we want to distribute different MS Updates to different OS (i.e. X64/x86) this would be of great help.

    Thank you very much for hints, tips, help... :)!

  • Hi,

    You use Update Lists to distribute the updates. You can monitor each update from an Update list in the reports. I usually run these two reports (category, report name).

    1) Software Updates - C. Deployment States, States 1 - Enforcement states for a deployment. This report will show the exact status of the updates, how many has downloaded, installed, reboot pending etc.

    2) Software Updates - A. Compliance, Compliance 1 - Overall Compliance. This report will show which updates are installed, missing and approved for the members of a collection

    I am pretty sure that these report will help you answer the question you have.
