Whats difference in Windows 10 Products WSUS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In our enviroment we are rolling out Windows 10 Pro and I'm configuring WSUS to update those Windows 10 clients.

    In the products categorie there are a lot Windows 10 options but what is the difference?
    - Windows 10 and later drivers
    - Windows 10 and later upgrade & Servicing drivers
    - Windows 10 Feature On Demand
    - Windows 10 GDR-DU
    - Windows 10 Language Interface Packs
    - Windows 10 Language Packs
    - Windows 10 LTSB
    - Windows 10

    Also in the Classifications you can choose between "Update Rollups", "Updates" and "Upgrades". What is the difference and what I need to take?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Windows 10 and later upgrade & servicing drivers – These are drivers that are offered in all Win10 scenarios (i.e., via Orchestrator, DSM, Device Manager, or during DU).

    Windows 10 and later drivers – These are drivers that will be offered outside of upgrade scenarios (i.e., via Orchestrator, DSM, or Device Manager). They won’t come down during DU.

  • I know that I am late to this party, but thanks Steven. There are so many new upgrade/update options with WSUS 3.0. The description you gave for the Windows 10 and later upgrade & servicing drivers and Windows 10 and later drivers was very useful. I have looked for something similar on technet, but to no avail. Is there a location that provides descriptions for all WSUS products?

    Thanks,

    Grim

  • With the Anniversary Update there are even more to choose from...I'm still scratching my head on what to check...and I'm sorry, but IMO those links that are in the proposed answer don't discuss any of these options:

  • Always wanted to know what all that different options were...

    GDR = General Distribution Release

    DU = Dynamic Update

    LP = Language Pack?

    Here I'm using only: Windows 10 and later drivers, Windows 10 GDR-DU and Windows 10. I really need to select more options if I want to have my Windows 10 clients machines updated?

    mercredi 17 août 2016 16:53
  • DU (Dynamic Update), refers to the ability during Windows Setup, to get updates which will improve the setup outcome (eg drivers which will ease the in-place-upgrade/setup process).

    DU only applies if you are running Windows Setup from within a running copy of Windows.

    Features On Demand (e.g. .NET Framework v3.5, not installed by default, can be sourced from windowsupdate or WSUS etc, as an alternative to providing the WinSxS or media/WIM)

  • What a mess :)

    I´m suprised, that Windows 7 does not have any additional classes anymore. I also wonder, what benefit LP selections bring? If I have Windows 10 1507 with LP installed, and I inplace-upgrade to W10 1607, will WSUS provide me new LP binaries?

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the confusion. The content of the second link in Gleb's reply has been changed. The original content should contain the meaning of Windows 10 servicing options, which is helpful for understanding the concept of LTSB, Upgrade etc.

    I've unmarked the anwser for preventing further confusion.

  • Microsoft seem to want to make this unnecessarily complicated instead of simple, and don't even keep to their own terminology for these things, instead introducing new (confusing) terms and categories.

    Windows 10 updates are supposed to follow 'feature' and 'quality' updates, with features following CB CBB and LTSB, but aside from LTSB these (terms) don't appear in the WSUS categories.

    Feature and quality are only high-level terms in presentations etc. Feature is behind "Upgrade" - class and "quality" is Cumulative Update released every month.

    I agree, this is complicated..

  • What a total mess and a complete and utter joke WSUS and Windows 10 is.  

    How so? Check all of the Windows 10 products, Check the appropriate Classifications you want but make sure to include Upgrade; use Windows as a Service (WaaS) and approve feature updates and let your clients auto-upgrade to the latest Windows 10 version.

    It truly has never been easier to upgrade systems and keep them up to date.

  • How so??? Are you kidding? Here is my SHORTENED list of options in WSUS:

    Windows 10 and later drivers
    Windows 10 and later upgrade & servicing drivers
    Windows 10 Anniversary Update and Later Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Anniversary Update and Later Upgrade & Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers <-- DUP?
    Windows 10 Creators Update and Later Upgrade & Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Dynamic Updates
    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and Later Upgrade & Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Feature On Demand
    Windows 10 GDR-DU FOD
    Windows 10 GDR-DU LP
    Windows 10 GDR-DU
    Windows 10 Language Interface Packs
    Windows 10 Language Packs
    Windows 10 LTSB
    <Skipping Windows 10 S>
    Windows 10 Version 1803 and later Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 Version 1803 and Later Upgrade & Servicing Drivers
    Windows 10 <-- Gotta love that!

    First notice that "Windows 10 Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers" is listed twice. Second, what is Anniversary vs. Creators vs. Fall? Only Windows programmers (Creators) get these updates?  Are there Summer, Spring, and Winter updates to go with the Fall updates only for Creators? Third: Language Interface Packs vs Language Packs <-- Really!? Forth: FOD vs. LP vs. <nothing>? Fifth and best of all: just "Windows 10" at the bottom!!!!

    No, this isn't confusing at all - makes perfect sense...

  • Adam - I love your work but I couldn't disagree more.  
    mardi 8 mai 2018 22:02
  • First, the explanations (at least to a certain point as the article was written in December 2016 but can be extrapolated to current date) can be found at the link below:

    https://www.urtech.ca/2016/12/solved-what-do-the-windows-10-product-names-mean-in-wsus/

    Second, If you've been following the Windows 10 product since inception, or google Windows 10 Names and then visit the Wikipedia article here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10_version_history) then you will know that:

        2.1 Version 1507
        2.2 Version 1511 (November Update)
        2.3 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update)
        2.4 Version 1703 (Creators Update)
        2.5 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update)
        2.6 Version 1803 (April 2018 Update)
        2.7 Version 1809 (Yet to be released or named)
    
    

    I will however agree with the Duplicate Creators Update and Later Servicing Drivers - that was/is an anomaly.

    As for Lang packs, the urtech link contains a great link to the explanations of LPs vs LIPs - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb688177.aspx

    Is it complicated? - NO; is it confusing? - At first maybe. It's a thought process switch; different from the old methods. Once you learn the thought process switch, it becomes super easy; kind of like that Office Toolbar switch back in Office 2003>2007. Can or would you go back to the old way? 99.9999% of the people I interact with would say no way (there's always the 1 who can't or won't change)

    Change how you think; change your life!

  • Hey Adam, thanks for that info.  That does help demystify some of my options.  I do stand by my belief that this is way to overly complicated.  Who would want updates for Win10 Anniversary version, but not Creators edition?  Or any other edition for that matter.  I don't see the benefit of getting so granular with WSUS.  Look at Windows 7 options for example: "Windows 7 LP" and "Windows 7" <-- that's it! As someone that manages Exchange, SQL, print servers, firewall, spam filter, Office365, and every other little IT need for 350 users, I prefer technology to make things easier.  By the way, none of this is directed at you - just giving my 2 cents!  Thanks for the reply and the help!
    mercredi 9 mai 2018 19:27
  • I agree.  My whole gripe with this is Windows 10 or Windows as a service is supposed to streamline the upgrade / update process and this is overly complicated.  There is also margin for error.  
    mercredi 9 mai 2018 19:33
  • Someone who is only deploying Win10 Anniversary in there network would want only the Win10 Anniversary updates but not creators edition updates (yet).

    The easier way to think of this is Microsoft has said that 'Windows 10" is going to be the last version of Windows ever... From a marketing perspective, they are correct. From a technical perspective, all they have done is renamed "Microsoft Windows" to "Microsoft Windows 10"

    Think of each update as a new 'Windows XP' or 'Windows 7"... There are many updates that apply to specific versions, and then there are generic updates that apply to all versions.

  • You're kidding, right? There are 25 Windows 10 products listed in WSUS and absolutely no details provided for any of them. Your smug attitude couldn't be more misplaced.

  • That link you provided is completely useless. Please, fountain of all knowledge, explain to me which boxes I need to tick to keep my W10 Pro machines updated and have the bi-annually update releases available through WSUS.

    So let's try putting just a *tiny* bit more effort into this, shall we?

    Explain Windows 10 Dynamic Update vs Windows 10 GDR-DU vs Windows 10

    Also, your smug (shitty) attitude would be somewhat tolerable if any of this information showed in the detail box in WSUS when someone's trying to figure this out.


    mercredi 11 juillet 2018 18:34
  • I feel your pain, mizzle! What I ended up doing was selecting all of the Windows 10 updates except for the following:

    Feature on demand; all Language Packs (2), and all Windows 10 S (5 total).

    We are not using Language Packs. We only have Windows 10 Pro, not 'S'. And I have no idea what 'Feature on demand' is, but I don't think we are using that either.

    Of course, we have enough resources on our WSUS server to handle these updates - 12GB RAM and 300GB HDD space.  If your WSUS server does not have enough resources, then you may need to dig a little deeper and find out which Windows 10 items you can remove.  Sorry if this is not much help, but after finding out I could just add most of the Windows 10 options, I did it and just moved on!  Good luck and post back if you find out any other information!!!

    I will answer this for the benefit of others... not necessarily you.

    This is MY interpretation of it.

    Windows 10 Dynamic Update - "This includes only updates to the setup process that occurs when one build of Windows 10 is trying to update to a new build of Windows" (from Urtech) - My take: Servicing updates for Windows 10 for upgrading from one build to the next. MS finds an issue with a specific model of Dell or HP, fixes it and releases the new patch as a serving update that, when applied, allows for that specific issue that prevented the upgrade to be fixed allowing the upgrade to happen. These serving updates may span 1607>1803, 1511>1803, 1703>1803, etc.

    Windows 10 GDR-DU - "Windows 10 GDR-DU: GDR = General Distribution Release, DU=Dynamic Update. These updates are only used by the current GDR build of Windows 10 when it is trying to perform a Dynamic Update (see item 5 above)." (Urtech) - My take: same as above, but ONLY for the GDR (ie 1709>1803)

    Windows 10 - "Windows 10: These are the standard release patches that are may apply to any or all builds of Windows 10.  Each one of these updates will have a KBase article for them." (Urtech) - My take: These are where most of the updates come from - security, etc. All builds of Windows 10 get Edge updates. These in my opinion would be included in this set, as would the malicious software removal tool.

    With WSUS Automated Maintenance, You don't need much. Mine is using 8GB RAM (was 4, but I use that server for PDQ Deploy too, so that is why I increased it to 8GB) and my HDD usage with all products of Windows 10, Windows 7, Exchange 2013, Office 2013, Server 2012, Server 2012R2, and a bunch of other products, along with ALL classifications selected including drivers... my content folder is less than 100GB.

    It's like this project was completely as minimally as possible and swept under the run.  I need ALL these fields answered.  I got a few from other blogs, but man is it lacking in the 2 categories I really need!

    Need to know precisely what each and everyone of these "Products" Windows and Office subcategory fields do @ (WSUS --> Update Services --> Options --> Products and Classification --> Products --> Windows and Office).  I'm unable to find any documentation specifically for these fields from Windows including WSUS PDFs such as 1) Ops Guide, 2) Deploy Guide or 3) Release Notes, which is kinda sad... :-/

This update mechanism should *not* be confused with the GDR-DU process (store upgrade).  OOBE ZDP update should not require more than one reboot.

    Windows 10 Language Interface Packs:  Windows Language Interface Pack (LIP) is a high-quality, localized “skin” for emerging or minority language markets.  LIP provides the desktop user with an approximately 80% localized user experience by translating a reduced set of user interface (UI) elements. LIP has a dependency on a base Language Pack of Windows.  Languages are offered as a LIP or a LP depend on the level of investment Microsoft has in a specific country/region. It is possible for a LIP market to grow into a LP market between the current and future Windows rollout.  See THIS article for more details on LIP and LP’s.

    Windows 10 Language Packs: Language Packs contain full blown languages.  Remember that at it’s core Windows 10 is language agnostic.  It comes with no default language and one has to be loaded for it to function.

    Windows 10 LTSB: LTSB = Long Term Servicing Branch.  Updates in this category are for a special long life version of Windows 10 that is promised to exist for 10 years with minimal updates.  See THIS for more details on Windows 10 LTSB.

  • Need to know precisely what each and everyone of these "Products" Windows and Office subcategory fields do @ (WSUS --> Update Services --> Options --> Products and Classification --> Products --> Windows and Office) 

    I've read numerous threads that redirect back to URTECH.CA, and it's great for the 13 items that it answers (I included them below, so credit to URTECH.CA, not me), but I need all of these answered.  I'm unable to find any documentation specifically for these fields from Windows including WSUS PDFs such as 1) Ops Guide, 2) Deploy Guide or 3) Release Notes, which is kinda sad... :-/

    OOBE ZDP
    Designed to allow “must have” updates to be installed during OOBE, before the user reaches the Start Screen. These updates are meant to fix security holes and functional issues that block core experiences in Blue as early as possible. IDP driver and firmware updates can also be delivered through this mechanism. This update mechanism should *not* be confused with the GDR-DU process (store upgrade).  OOBE ZDP update should not require more than one reboot. The combined size of all available OOBE ZDP updates should be less than 5MB. The combined install time of all OOBE ZDP should be less than 4 minutes.

  • Yep.  It's total nonsense.  Insane garbage that they can try to defend as much as they want but it's idiotic.
