Wsus last status report not updating sccm
The first free tool you can use to check computers for missing updates is the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), which you can download from Microsoft's website.
The latest version, MBSA 2.1.1, supports scanning Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers.
Branch Cache is a new feature for computers running Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 (Enterprise or Ultimate editions).
Branch Cache lets clients at branch offices share content automatically with each other when they obtain that content from an appropriately configured remote server.
For example, the following script scans all computers listed in the file and adds the names of computers missing the hotfix indicated by the identifier KB974332 to a text file named Missing-KB974332.txt: Although the code appears on multiple lines here, you would enter it all on one line.
Update management is a task IT professionals approach with the same enthusiasm they usually reserve for a visit to the dentist.
Ensuring that computers are up-to-date is tedious, and at the back of every IT professional's mind is the fear that lurking somewhere deep within a newly released patch is code that will cause more problems than it solves.
Just as you generally don't want to have all your computers downloading the same large update from the Internet, you don't want to have 100 computers at a branch office all downloading the same update from the head office WSUS server across a low-bandwidth WAN link.
You can configure WSUS so that it hosts only the update approval list and not the update files, forcing WSUS clients to download update files from the Internet, but this means that all WSUS clients, not just those in branch offices, source their update files from Microsoft's update servers.It's possible to configure WSUS servers in an upstream/downstream relationship so that updates approved on one server are automatically approved on another, but every server you add to your infrastructure will increase costs in some way.
