How can I use servicing plans in System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) to upgrade Windows 10 devices ?

I am a bit confused about step configuring Updates in the servicing plan.

When i  click on "Preview" i do not see any information:

What have i missed?

Thank you


In "Software Update Point Components Properties" Upgrades classification and Windows 10 product must be selected.

It think there's a simple typo: Use "Enterprise" instead of "Enterprice" ...

Hopefully that works for you - I'm struggeling with "Required=>=1": If I select "Required=>1" no Upgrades are shown, if I deselect it a list of Upgrades appears in the Preview.

Kind regards,

Hi all.

Thanks for the awesome write-up.

I followed the guide and all worked well, except my client also receives no updates/upgrades whatsoever. I even deployed the update directly, completely ignoring the Servicing Plan - but nothing happens on my client.

All that I did notice was that the SUP is now added to my registry. I was on Microsoft Updates before.

The SCCM is 1610 and I'm trying to deploy Windows 10 1703.

Can anyone help? Any logs I can scan?

Thanks in advance.

just followed the guide and created a service plan for the 1703. 

But one thing confused me: How can I defer (or disable at all) the feature update installation by windows / microsoft update online. According to that technet article the defer windows update gpo is not the correct way as it will enable Windows Update for Business (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2017/01/09/why-wsus-and-sccm-managed-clients-are-reaching-out-to-microsoft-online/). How can i defer feature updates by Windows/Microsoft update without disabling any other Windows/Microsoft online update service (like the store)?

It's a great article on setting up servicing plans, but where I get confused is how to get my Windows 10 devices detected as CBB instead of CB. There is a Computer Policy under Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Windows Update - Defer Windows Update where you can set the branch readiness level (also mentioned here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askpfeplat/2017/02/21/identifying-waas-systems-using-config-manager/ )... If you read through the comments under the article they mention NOT to use the specified GPO because of the dual scan issues.

Also mentioned here ( https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2017/01/09/why-wsus-and-sccm-managed-clients-are-reaching-out-to-microsoft-online/ ) 

So I guess this article is a big no no for now... https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/deployment/update/waas-servicing-channels-windows-10-updates

So my main question is: When using Windows 10 with SCCM where/how do I set the clients to CBB instead of CB or is it sufficient to just use collections for the servicing rings and set the delay in there? And when not using GPO how do I make sure SCCM does not see al my devices as CB instead of CBB
