Server Cleanup Wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • I Always approved all the security updates. I start last year(2012).

    I never used The Server Cleanup Wizard to remove ( expires and supersede updates).

    Only now I am approving new security update and that aren´t superseded.

    Like Lawrence Garvin said:

    The only thing that matters are these two points:

    • Is the update reported as Needed by a client system?
    • Is the update NOT superseded by another update.

    With this cenario I coud start use the Server Cleanup Wizard  ?

    It is only in the Server Cleanup Wizard  welcome screen to click and choose expires and supersede updates and  nothing more ?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Ideally you would have been using the Server Cleanup Wizard in the first month the WSUS Server was in service. Yes, absolutely, you need to run the Server Cleanup Wizard monthly, in combination with removing approvals/declining updates that no longer need to have active approvals.

    There are dozens of conversations on the use of the Server Cleanup Wizard in this forum. I would suggest searching for them.
