Products and Classifications questions for WSUS running on Server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    we've started to implement windows server 2016 and due to the problems with the version of Windows Server 2016 visible in WSUS running on Windows Server 2012 R2 we've deployed WSUS on Windows Server 2016. Now everything looks ok but I have some questions to the Products and Classifications there.

    Windows 10 Dynamic Update
    Windows 10 Feature on Demand
    Windows 10 GDR-DU LP
    Windows 10 GDR-DU
    Windows 10 S and Later Servicing Drivers

    Q: Does someone could explain what exactly Dynamic Update and Feature on Demand bring to WSUS?

    Q: I see for the first time Windows 10 GDR-DU and Windows S - any ideas?

    2 x Windows 10 Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers 

    Q: This is present 2 times in the list without any difference between them. Is this a bug?

    Windows 10 and later drivers
    Windows 10 Anniversary Update and Later Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers

    Q: Is there any difference except the name of course? I though that Windows 10 and later drivers should be sufficient.

    I'll be glad if you could help me with short information about this. 

    Thanks in advance

    Also , anther article mentioned creators update:

    "

    After releasing Windows 10 Creators Update build 15063 version 1703 to public, Microsoft has once again started providing new testing builds of Windows 10 to Windows Insiders group.

    The new Windows 10 Insider Preview builds come from a new development branch called RS3(RedStone3), so all new Windows 10 builds releasing after Creators Update will be referred as Windows 10 Redstone 3 builds.

    When Microsoft will finalize the RTM build of RedStone3 in future, it'll be called as Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and will be released to public in September or October 2017 as per official announcement from Microsoft.
