SCCM 2012 SP1- Using ADR how to prevent one update

Recommended Posts

I am using SCCM 2012 SP1 and have multiple ADR's setup (Windows 7, Windows 8, Office 20120, Office 2013, etc). They are running fine and deploying updates automatically very nicely.


How do I stop one particular update (whatever it may be) from being deployed? On occasion we find one update not compatible with our software for whatever reason and must delay deployment until the issue is resolved.


I know I am trying to use ADR and then stop it from doing what it is expected to do, just trying to find out how others are handling this. Hopefully I am missing something simple.

Thank you for the link Jorgen.


For the ADR Software Update Group that was automatically created, do most delete the created group, set the custom severity on the unwanted update, then rerun the ADR to regenerate the monthly Software Update Group?


This method only stops it from going out in the future correct?

So for instance, I skip the following since they do a double reboot and kill a task sequence I use:
