My sccm is acting weird.
Hi Marshall. You got it all wrong... First of all, the WSUS server and the SCCM server are diffrent, i didn't import any updates from the wsus server, i installed the wsus to the sccm server, and then i managed it from the sccm server, NOT FROM THE WSUS CONSOLE. It's not the first time that i'm dealing with sccm, i'm just saying that it's the first time, i have a feeling that not all the updates are getting download from microsoft servers. and as i mentioned above, i configured the products that i want to download updates to, and the classifications just the way i'm doing it all the time. Btw, the installation was to gethere with a guy from microsoft PFE (premier field engineer). Sometimes stange things happend in the IT world, that why there are forums out there to help each other out to solve the case. Anyway, we belive that we will use the microsoft PFE guy to come here, and maybe reinstall the wsus from scratch. I just thought you guys have some leads i havn't thought about... Best regards, Nahum.

Hi there. Finally, after 3 weeks we decided to move from wsus updates server, and to work with the sccm. for some reason, after i configured the wsus server, and choose the the updates i want to download, it seems that the sccm didn't download all the critical updates of windows 7.(the other critical and security updates looks fine in windows xp). I checked the wsyncmgr.log in the sccm server, all looks great, no errors, and it seems that two days ago it downloaded updates. I checked the hard disk on the server, i have plenty of space. (89gb). For some reason i can see that in the old wsus server, there are more updates for windows 7, then i have in my sccm... What's going on here, now people ask me how can it be that sccm is better then wsus, when i get this kind of results....(embaressing). Please advise...i want to fix this issue. Best regards, Nahum.

I think, (First thing) I will check is ... Software Update Component --> Classifications and Products tab... Ensure that all the required boxes (Classifications and Products) are selected.

Hi An00p, I wouldn't post this question if none of the products or updates would'nt be mark as i want. Trust me, the classifications are marked just the way i want them to be (security updates, critical updates,rollup updates). sounds weird dosen't it...? :)

Hi Tom, Please read the message i post to Anoop. Everything is configured just fine, and i don't think that i should check everything in the the classifications tab, because all i need is the updates i mention in my previous post. you are missing the point guys, in my post i worte the the proeblem appears to be that the sccm downloads only a few updates from the security and critical updates, and this is the issue.

for some reason, after i configured the wsus server, and choose the the updates i We don't need to configure WSUS server through wsus console (I hope, your above statement means, you've configured WSUS through ConfigMgr SUP role). Have you tried to resync and check? Are you able to see the win 7 updates in NEW WSUS server console ?Anoop C Nair - @anoopmannur :: MY Site: www.AnoopCNair.com :: FaceBook: ConfigMgr(SCCM) Page :: Linkedin: Linkedin<

Hi An00p... Yes, the wsus was confuigred correctly through the SCCM server, NOT from the wsus server...

Sorry to say this but you're in the minority that can't get WSUS and ConfigMgr working together perfectly. It works 99% of the time for most customers. When it's not working it is because the install is bent out of shape. Key things I took away from your posting, you've re-used WSUS when the product requires a fresh copy of WSUS database, and second is that you should not be using the WSUS console to control content, control of the Software Updates feature is done from the ConfigMgr console. In a lab, install WSUS and leave it alone, then intall ConfigMgr along with the Software Update Point role. Go from there. Here's the document link for how to control the Software Updates feature from the ConfigMgr console: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680701.aspx
