Understanign SUP group statistics RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    While creating a new AD and deployed it successfully, under Software Update Groups, we are getting some statistics which not really cleat and understandable for me.

    We are seeing three counts:

    Complaint: 800

    Non-Complaint :50

    Unknown: 100

    My question is -  Does complaint mean that 800 computers are installed the the ADR updates? or just communicated with SCCM successfully and they have some required updates?

    What does mean "Non-Compliant"? can't get info? can't get the metadata from clients? no update is required for this ADR?

    What about "Known" ?: As far as I know it should be temporary location for Clients and they can could be also computers which are not accessible and some activity issues with Clients, how can I get the list "Unknown" computer list? not found any normal report which describe me which computers are updated! which not yet, and which can't get updates at all.

    1. no, it means that 800 has been applied or don't require that SU.
    2. it means they require the SU bur haven't applied it.
    3. it mean that the SU status is unknown

  • 1) ADRs don't deployed updates so there are no ADR to client statistics. Thus, the numbers show in the update groups node are for the update groups and the updates that are members of each update group.

    2) There's no way to know. Could be one of many different reasons. Same as why didn't the student complete their homework? There's no way to know from just looking at numbers.

    3) There are tons of built-in reports all under the Software Updates categories.

  • Regarding the numbers, they do not point for "Computers", they are presenting the updates counts, are you sure about that?

    Sorry, I don't know what you're asking here.

    As far as I understood from you, there is no way knowing how may PC's are updated

    From the console specifically, no. For the reports, that depends on exactly what question you are trying to answer. Are you trying to discover exactly how many systems installed a specific update from a specific deployment? If so, I don't think that's possible as ConfigMgr doesn't explicit track that, it simply tracks which systems are compliant or not.
