  1. In my Windows 10 LTSC 1809 task sequence, the Install Software Updates step is failing to run. I have attached the log files for the latest attempt to build a test machine. I have deployed the required software update group to both the Unknown Computer collection (as I am deleting the SCCM object for the test machine before each test build) and to a common collection that all of the test machines are put into. The machine does receive and install updates post-build successfully so it is not the software update group or the deployment package as far as I can tell. smsts.zip UpdatesDeployment
  2. Hi, I have to deploy windows updates on critical servers which gets patched very rarely due to some team dependency. I have SCCM CB 1706 installed. My client set below conditions: 1. Updates should get downloaded beforehand 48 hours actual Installation date. 2. If needed, installation time may change. Deployment should accomodate that. 3. Deployment time is 2 hours for 1 batch. So in case if deployment gets carried over 2 hours, second batch should not start. How to achieve this 1. Without maintenance window 2. With maintenance window 3. Any other way apart from above
  3. Hello Everyone, I want to get in the habit of cleaning up my SUGs created by my ADRs. I'd like to do this every 6 months but I've run into a problem. Within one of my ADRs, for example, I have the following set for the 'Title' options: -Preview -Security Only Quality Update -Security Only Update -x86 If I want to roll-up updates from the last 6 months into a single SUG, I am unable to enter in these items for the 'Title' option when searching from the 'Software Updates' node. I can only choose one. Aside from that, what is the best practice for rolling
  4. Hi guys, I am currently looking at the patch status of our devices, especially given everything that's happening at the moment. When I filter on Security Updates, I can see an update (KB4019472 for example) and the required column says 4, but I have at least 200 devices that should be requesting that patch. What am I missing? The Software Updates section for my clients are:- Enable Software Updates = Yes Software update scan schedule = Simple schedule running every day Schedule deployment re-evaluation = Simple schedule running every day When any sofwtare dep
  5. We are upgrading to Current Branch and want to include patching from this and not WSUS as curretly used. what is the best way to patch 3rd party applications through SCCM Current Branch?
  6. Hi. I'm having a bit of trouble with a task sequence. Everything runs fine and quick, until 'Running Action: install Software Updates'. It seems to hang/stall at 60% for hours. I can't see anything in the logs that obvious. I have a Primary in DomainA, and a Secondary in DomainB, and a DP off the Secondary in DomainB. The client PXE boots off the DP, seems to to do everything fine until the 'Install Software Updates' part. It does eventually complete after a few hours. As far as I can tell, all the updates are distributed to the DP. Can anyone point me in the right direction of where t
  7. Hello all, On Tuesday afternoon I searched for the new updates and nothing showed up. I figured I might be too early so I went about my business. This morning (Thursday) I searched and it still finds no updated released in the last month. I searched the last 2 months and it found the November Rollups that have already been deployed. Last month in our monthly maintenance window we updated to CU4. Could that be the problem? I have not heard of any issues regarding CU4, although it's still early in it's release. I am not even sure where to look to see why it's not finding the latest u
  8. Hello All, I have a Powershell script that I use to create multiple Software Update Deployments and it works perfectly (well almost). The last piece I'm missing is automating the deadline date. Currently I just have it getting the current date and adding 5 days. I then go into each deployments properties and change the date/time to the desired info. I've been trying to work out automating this a little bit by adding a variable for a static date/time. I can then change this date (time will always be the same) to the desired info at script run. Below is what I've come up with so far. The
  9. Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone could give me some help setting up my software updates. I understand the concepts and such, but I struggling with setting up the Update Groups and Deployment Packages. From what I am reading, a lot of people are saying to create a Update Group per month, every month, then eventually roll these updates into a yearly software update group. This makes sense to me. My question is, should I have software update groups per product? Example, one for Windows 7 and one for Windows 8.1? Or should I just have one software update group per month, w
  10. Gents, Do you know if software updates are stored in the content library and then distributed by the distribution points or if they are stored on the SUP (so clients need to download them from SUP) If there is an article dealing about this please do not hesitate to send the link.
  11. I apologize if this is obvious and is answered somewhere else, but I wasn't able to find by searching. SCCM 2012. I have a few thousand Windows Embedded Standard 7 (SP1) systems. I have a Software Update Group with the latest updates and I've deployed it to a collection with a test system. When I check that system it says "There are no updates available for your computer". If I run a report in SCCM it shows "Not required" for all the updates in the update group. However, if I click "Check online for updates from Windows Update" from the client it eventually comes back with a list of requir
  12. Hi Everyone, I wanted to let you know that this month's free report giveaway is Patch Compliance Progression by Collection For each PC within a collection, the Patch Compliance Progression by Collection report will provide you with a count of missing software updates (patches) and the last hardware inventory date. The deployed state report parameter allows you to select the deployed state of the software update. The deployed states are: Yes – The effected software update is deployed within your environment No – The effected software update is NOT deployed within your environment Both
  13. So I'm trying to better automate my update process in SCCM 2012 R2 SP1. Right now I have an ADR that runs in the evening on Patch Tuesday that finds the appropriate updates based on update classification, product, date, not expired or superseded. It downloads the updates it finds into the Deployment Package, creates a new SUG for the month and deploys it out to the first pilot group. Then the next morning I come in and change the name of the SUG and the deployment to meet the naming standard, deploy it out to the remaining pilot and prod groups and email the end users affected in each group
  14. Hi, I've noticed something odd about my Windows Updates. I have ADRs which run on Patch Tuesday, one for Windows 7, 8, Office 2010 and 2013. The updates are placed in four respective Software Update Groups. It seems like older updates are removed from those SUGs. The rules have been in place since the beginning of January. Right now there should be a few dozen updates in this SUG but there are only two. If I filter all my updates like below (to double check that the updates aren't expired/superseded) it finds 24 updates. Why aren't these in my SUG above? The ADR is
  15. Gents, We are managing MS updates through SCCM and it is working well. We are now facing to a reboot issue. We enable the following GPO : No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates So there is no automatic restart but there is still a reboot required at the end of the grace period I think. I would like to increase this period or delete the reboot any idea ? Sypa
  16. Hello, I am getting ready to deploy some Office Service Packs. However I have no service packs for Microsoft Project 2013 or Visio 2013. Google search shows that these service packs are available however I cannot for the life of me find these in WSUS/SCCM Software Updates. I see SPs for Windows, Office, Visio Viewer, SharePoint, etc so the classification is definitely being polled and added to SCCM. Do these two (Project/Visio) service packs need to be pushed out as packages? If anyone could shed some light on this it'd be much appreciated. Thanks, Mike
  17. Gents, I recently set up software updates through automatic deployment rules. All works fine but some days after the deployments, users' laptops restart without any notification. Do you have an idea in order to suppress these unwanted reboots. Thanks in advance. Syparon
  18. We had an Admin that "Accidentally" uninstalled the WSUS, settings and DB from the SCCM 2012 R2 Server. After reinstalling the WSUS server, settings and DB with the same settings, nothing is syncing with the SCCM 2012 R2 software updates group. When refreshing the "All Software Updates" it only shows the updates from December 2014 and nothing from January. Is there a way to "re-link" SCCM with WSUS or do I have to reconfigure all the groups again from scratch? The original setup of the Software Update Service were followed using the Step-By-Step guides on this site.
  19. Wondering if anyone knows the proper Update classifications to make the client Root Certificate updates (i.e. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125) available to deploy? Can't seem to find any documentation on exactly what classes to include. Here are my classification settings (Administration > Configure Site Components > Software Update Point): Doesn't look available in the All Software Update node.
  20. Afternoon All, Hopefully there are some experienced SCUP users here on the forums. I seem to have an issue with the "Automatic" publishing feature of SCUP. They publish metadata only, despite client requesting that they need the update. My understanding is that if any Configuration Manager clients are requesting the update a full content will be initiated otherwise only metadata will be published. Am i missing something? Is there a specific log I can look at to see why it's not switching to full content automatically when requested?
  21. I wanted to put this topic in the main CM2012 forum, but I can't, for some reason. That's why it's posted here. Hello, I was really hoping someone could help me with this. Background information: - We have a CM07 server in a production environment. - I've set up a CM12 RTM server, following the guides in this forum, with the hopes of migrating soon. - I wanted to do OSD from scratch to learn more and to take advantage of new features in CM12. - I have a few virtual machines running for testing OSD/apps (these are the only clients managed by my CM12 server). - Since it's not po
  22. I've just setup SCUP 2011 on my SCCM 2012 (2008 R2) server and managed to do the following: Configured: WSUS on same server, connected to Config Manager. Downloaded Adobe Updates via the SCUP Catalogue. Got the updates Published to SCCM 2012 and assigned to a Package and Software Group within SCCM Exported the WSUS cert and reimported as Trusted Publisher and Root on the test client and also the server. Assigned deployment to test collection that has one computer in need of those updates. However, on the client itself, I cannot get it to detect and download the relevant updates for Adob
  23. Hi, I've been using SCCM 2012 R2 for some time know, but there are still some mysteries to me. I have been asked to start deploying software updates through it rather than WSUS or Windows Updates itself. Before i came along, people got their updates the old fashion way-Windows Updates. So after the grueling task of figuring that out, i've got it working-ish! My main concern with this method (and also Endpoint) is that the majority of our users are NOT on the domain/network at all times. We do have several hub offices whose machines are on the network, but our line of work is mostly remote
  24. Updates are not showing as expired anymore in my update lists. For years, I would sync WSUS, then sync my SCCM repository and several updates each month would get flagged as expired. I would then remove them from my list and my deployment. Recently over the past few months, I've noticed that even though WSUS is showing that x number of updates have expired, SCCM is not showing them as expired. Right now, I am specifically talking about MS14-045 that MS recalled. I synced WSUS yesterday, looked at the sync report and MS14-045 was expired. But when I go to my SCCM repository and sync
  25. Hi All, Just wondering how people do there software updates for servers and workstations using SCCM 2012. Do you use ADR's to create a new update group each month after patch Tuesday, and have a separate one for out of bands updates? Do you then have several different collections for servers and workstations for pilot, dev and production phases? Just trying to get an idea as to how to create a software update plan for my environment.
