WSUS SCCM approve updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is probably going to be a really easy question to answer, but when we are deploying our updates using sccm, do we still need to approve them through WSUS or does sccm automatically do that when you set up a list of updates.

  • When you use SCCM for your updates, you do NOT need to approve updates anymore in WSUS.

  • Great, thank you for the quick response, I do have the latest client so I am good there, and I don't have to manually approve the updates anymore, also a good thing, thanks!!!!  Is it still a good way to monitor your updates using WSUS only for reporting purposes I mean.  Unfortunately we have a short period of time to run our updates and we need to know right away what servers still need patches.  And we can get them to check back in using "right click tools" those are fantastic by the way.  So is that about right or do you have a better way to figure out which servers still have updates waiting or if they haven't installed yet.  Thanks!!!

  • I would use the Reports from SCCM for that. Take a look here for what the Standard Reports are for Software Updates: http://www.myitforum.com/myITWiki/SCCMSU_StandardReports.ashx

  • Are they automatically approved?

  • when you create a deployment management task for X amount of updates, those X updates are in effect, approved for distribution,

    in SCCM they are not auto approved

  • But why I can find a lot of updates not approved in WSUS?  and didn't find them in SCCM?

    For example, the recent updates KB3161608, I can find it in not approval list.

    And I don't find it from my SCCM update list:

    ConfigMgr does *NOT* perform Approvals in the WSUS database.
    Update approvals, in a ConfigMgr integrated WSUS (SUP), are performed and stored within the ConfigMgr database and not in the WSUS database.
    In a ConfigMgr scenario, an update approval is known as a Deployment.

    As for KB3161608, this was the June 2016 Win7 rollup, which was "replaced by the July 2016 rollup".
    In my ConfigMgr2012R2, 3161608 is marked as expired (and interestingly not marked as superseded by KB3172605). Your CM2007 has probably already cleaned out KB3161608?
