Should I approve updates with "Known issues"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.In July 10th Microsoft published some updates which most of them have issue e.g. KB 4338814 , KB4338815.

    After that in July 17th, Microsoft released other Rollup updates which solve the aforementioned updates' problems and supersedes them.  I want to know if I should approve both July 10th and July 17th updates on WSUS or approving 17th is enough?

  • Hello harsini,


    Glad to help.


    For KB4338814, it has been replaced by KB4345418, so you do not need to approve KB4338814 any more.



    For KB4338815, it is not replaced by KB4338831, but would be replaced by next month rollup.


    Note: KB4338815 belongs to "security update" which means you should install it for security reasons, while KB4338831 belongs to "non-security update". However, KB4338831 does fix some issue of KB4338815.


    For short, it is recommended that the best practice is:

    • Approve KB4345418 instead of KB4338814.
    • Approve KB4338815.
    • Approve KB4338831 if you need to fix the Known Issue.


    Hope above answer helps.


    Best Regards,
