Products and Classifications Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a basic question about Products and Classifications in WSUS. I'm running WSUS on a Windows Server 2012 R2 host, and we have Windows 10 LTSB hosts as well as other Windows Server 2012 R2 hosts connecting to the WSUS server for updates.

    Under the Windows category on the Products tab, should I select only Windows 10 LTSB and Windows Server 2012 R2 from the products list? Will I miss any OS updates if I don't also select Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012?

    Thanks

    Please have a look at:

    Essentially, check it all for the Windows 10 systems. As for 2012 vs 2012R2, just select the R2 one (essentially it's Windows 8 vs 8.1 as they share updates, and they are different OS's).
