Windows updates - Old updates prior to new Monthly Rollup regime RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I am currently looking to create a rollup package within my environment for all patches (all installed and new patches).

    Looking over the patches inside of SCCM updates, I can see a long list of patches like:

    Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3159398) (published 15/06/2016).

    When the rollups where announced, I believe there was some advice from MS that these older patches would be retrospectively added to the rollups over the coming year?

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsitpro/2016/08/15/further-simplifying-servicing-model-for-windows-7-and-windows-8-1/

    Has there been any advice to say which have been done/have any been done? Its been over a year since that was published and I was looking forward to not having 100+ old patches hanging around?

    Thanks,

  • Thanks Adam,

    I think I was after a more direct response from MS on this one (not just windows 7 - all server variants as well) and more in regards to MS advising they would add the old updates to the new rollup.

    I will ask the question through more direct channels.

    Cheers,
