Can we install expired updates to the clients using sccm ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some doubts only  like :

    1) Can we install expired updates to the clients using sccm ?

    2) if some update get expired after some month how we deal with it? how we can find such expired updates and remove them from machines ?

    3)what is the best practice to choose update period time ? If i choose 3 months updates to install will be be the best idea ?

    4) one July update got expired  and its not able to install on user machine, its is because the update is not expired ? so any update which will be expired those updates will not installed on user machine ?

  • 1. See Kaylan's answer. Why would you want to though. They are expired for a reason.

    2. See Kaylan's answer again. There's no reason to remove them. They've most likely been superseded and thus you simply need to deploy the superseding update.

    3. There are no such things are best practices. Learn the tool and match it's supported capabilities to your requirements.

    4. You have way to many "not"s in your question and so it doesn't make sense. A single expired update has no  impact on other deployed updates though.

  • Hi 

    You cant install expired update through SCCM. If the download is available, you can download and install the update as software. (But there are risk install expired / superseded updates)

    You can install latest rollup and cumulative updates if you are not patching your environment monthly.

  • Dont worry about the expired updates which is already installed on machine. It will not create any issue, 

    Is there any reason why you want to remove expired update from every machine?

    Kindly refer the below blog, it will help you to plan update deployment
