Incorrect Updates Listed in WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running WSUS 3.2 Version

    While planning for Windows Patching , I selected required products/classification and synchronized updates. I did not select Microsoft Sharepoint and Exchange 2010/2013 but ALL Updates showing updates for Exchange as well as Sharepoint.

    Now, because of this, While approving all updates in WSUS, all these exchange/sharepoint patches got approved. To correct this, I then reapproved the patches for computer groups and selected Not Approved for all patches and computer groups.

    Now, I have set the deadlines again for all computer groups and manually had to decline Exchange/Sharepoint patches.

    COuld you please suggest if this is due to WSUS database corruption of something else.

    Thanks,

    Here's my first observation.... Did you really approve **ALL** of the updates?

    COuld you please suggest if this is due to WSUS database corruption of something else.

    I highly doubt that database corruption has anything at all to do with this situation.

  • Hello,

    When you selected Products/classifications, could you tell us which one you selected ?

    Indeed Exchange is separated from all products you can find, but Sharepoint is part of the Office Classification.
    Because of that it suppose you to manually control that you will not approved useless updates.

    Regards.

    TiGrOu.
