How to verify remote laptops are receiving update approvals and downloading update files from Microsoft? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have set up our VPN IP ranges as a slow network boundary group and configured the Software Updates deployments to not download from the DP when on a slow network and to use Microsoft to download when updates aren't available from the DP.

    How can I verify that a laptop connected to VPN is receiving the current updates approvals in the SUGs and ADRs and is successfully downloading updates from Microsoft and not using the DP to download these updates?

  • You need to check the logs on the clients themselves as none of this is explicitly tracked centrally.

    wuahandler.log will show if the client is scanning for compliance properly. contenttransfermanager.log and CAS.log will show you where the client is downloading content from.

    On a side note, clients don't know anything about ADRs and there's really no such thing as an approval at a technical level.

  • I've just noticed that you had an other similar post, and I respond about the same answer because it seems to be in same area.

  • We have not set up IBCM or DA yet. 

    For now, we just need it to work over our VPN connection.
