After approving all updates, I only need to update the log file and send this file by email to myself.This way, I am sure I've approved the updates, and I receive brief information about them.Like before, I'm using Task Scheduler to run the script: As you know, Microsoft frequently replaces single updates with packages of multiple updates. Cleanup Unneeded Content Files = $true $cleanup Manager = $wsus. Perform Cleanup($cleanup Scope); Stop-Transcript All I'm doing in the script above is defining a cleanup scope using the Clean Up Scope object and then running Clean Up Manager using the corresponding object against that scope.

Eg, if you want to keep superseded updates published within the last 2 months, specify a value of 60 (days) # Supersedence chain could have multiple updates. # To decline only the last level updates in the supersedence chain, specify the Decline Last Level Only switch # Usage: # ======= # To do a test run against WSUS Server without SSL # Decline-Superseded Updates.ps1 -Update Server SERVERNAME -Port 8530 -Skip Decline # To do a test run against WSUS Server using SSL # Decline-Superseded Updates.ps1 -Update Server SERVERNAME -Use SSL -Port 8531 -Skip Decline # To decline all superseded updates on the WSUS Server using SSL # Decline-Superseded Updates.ps1 -Update Server SERVERNAME -Use SSL -Port 8531 # To decline only Last Level superseded updates on the WSUS Server using SSL # Decline-Superseded Updates.ps1 -Update Server SERVERNAME -Use SSL -Port 8531 -Decline Last Level Only # To decline all superseded updates on the WSUS Server using SSL but keep superseded updates published within the last 2 months (60 days) # Decline-Superseded Updates.ps1 -Update Server SERVERNAME -Use SSL -Port 8531 -Exclusion Period 60 [Cmdlet Binding()] Param( [Parameter(Mandatory=$True, Position=1)] [string] $Update Server, [Parameter(Mandatory=$False)] [switch] $Use SSL, [Parameter(Mandatory=$True, Position=2)] $Port, [switch] $Skip Decline, [switch] $Decline Last Level Only, [Parameter(Mandatory=$False)] [int] $Exclusion Period = 0 ) $file = "c:\temp\WSUS_Decline_Superseded_.log" -f (Get-Date) Start-Transcript -Path $file if ($Skip Decline -and $Decline Last Level Only) $out Path = Split-Path $script: My Invocation.

To remove them completely, you have to run the WSUS cleanup wizard. The thing is, I just need to do this on a particular Friday every month.

After installing this update (or any update released on July 18th or later), you will see this group policy under Windows Components/Windows Update: In order for Dual Scan to be enabled, the Windows Update client now also requires that the "Do not allow update deferral policies to cause scans against Windows Update" is not configured.

In other words, if this policy is enabled, then changing the deferral policies in a WSUS environment will not cause Dual-Scan behavior.

The Configuration Manager team has published its own guidance for this scenario.

Note that WSUS still ignores all deferral policies that have been configured, and that any deferral policies you do configure will only affect offering and download of updates for Microsoft products.
