Exchange Roll up's getting pushed to my Exchange servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have WSUS pushing updates to my clients. Exchange Rollups are getting pushed to my exchange servers. I would like to manually install them and not have wsus push them. I do not have update roll ups chosen.  

    Below is the settings in wsus

    Any suggestions? 

    Also, I now have Windows Server 2012 DC's anything diffrent I need to do in WSUS?

    Below is the wsus version i think?

    WSUS does not actually push updates. I'm going to assume, however, that by saying that what you actually mean is that you have a Scheduled Installation event on your Exchange Server that is having the Windows Update Agent automatically install the approved Exchange Rollups.

    So, the simple fix is to just turn off the scheduled installations and install them manually.

  • I do not want Exchange Roll ups to be downloaded and show up in my Exchange servers as an available update. I thought I blocked them as you can see in the screen shots (uncheck rollups) , but I am getting notified they have been downloaded and ready for install. Any suggestions? thx

    Some Exchange Rollups are not classified as Rollups, they are classified as Security Updates, and you *are* synchronising those...

  • Ohh that would explain why they get downloaded thanks! So any suggestions on how to configure WSUS or  GPO to not download Exch rollups? I have 2 Exchange DAG servers and 2 Exchange CAS servers. I thought best practice is to manually install the rollups so I can move databases off the exchange server I am updating with the roll up?

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with Exchange very much.
    If Exchange patching is something that should be done manually (or with some intervention), then I'd suggest that you reconfigure the WUAgent settings on your Exchange server and set it to "download but don't install", and then you'll need to establish a scheduled task for yourself to periodically logon and do the maintenance manually.

    If you are using Domain GP to apply the WUAgent settings, then you would need to vary that, or not apply that, to these servers.

    Are the Exchange servers placed in their own OU in your AD ?
    If so, what GPOs do you have linked to that OU?
    If so, what GPOs are inheriting to that OU?
    [you'll need to know that, to work out how to restructure your GPOs to "exempt" these machines]
