where is this "Monthly Roll Up Updates"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • in this Windows Update History Survey

    number 6, monthly rollup updates is mentioned separately from security updates.

    but if you look at WSUS' classification tab, there is no way to select monthly rollup updates.

    looks like the survey itself needs a survey on correctness.

  • Hi Reno,
      

    I have browsed the survey form you provided. From the official introduction, there are differences between the two types of updates:
      

    • Security-only update
      An update that collects all the new security updates for a given month and for a given product, addressing security-related vulnerabilities and distributed.
    • Monthly Rollup
      A tested, cumulative set of updates. They include both security and reliability updates that are packaged together and distributed.
        

    In WSUS, they are also classified differently:
      

    • The classification "Security-only update" belongs to "Security Updates".
    • The classification of "Monthly Rollup" belongs to "Updates".
        

    So I think it is reasonable to list them separately.
    Hope the above can help you.

    this is confusing. in the other thread at the last post,

    you said "The classification of the Monthly Rollup update in WSUS is "Security Updates".

  • Hi Reno,
      

    Thank you for your correction. This seems to be my understanding mistake:
      

    • Monthly Rollup
      This Monthly Rollup would be displayed under the title Security Monthly Quality Rollup when you download or install.
        

    Actually in WSUS, the category of this type of update is indeed "Security Updates".
    I am sorry for the doubts caused to you.
