Microsoft’s Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) is undergoing changes with the process of importing updates. Users will now utilize a new PowerShell script for importing updates, enhancing the protection of organizational devices.
Changes to Importing Updates into WSUS
Microsoft is introducing changes to the way updates are imported into Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). This change is set to enhance the security and efficiency of updating devices within your organization.
Instead of the previous method of importing updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog site via the WSUS admin user interface, you’ll now use a new PowerShell script. This shift aims to streamline the update process and bolster the security of your devices.
The old method of importing updates involved the WSUS admin user interface, specifically the Updates>Actionspane. However, this is no longer the case. The new process leverages the power and flexibility of PowerShell scripts.
Why is this Important?
Regularly updating your devices is crucial in maintaining a secure digital environment. By shifting to a PowerShell script, Microsoft aims to make this process more efficient and secure.
“If you use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to update devices, the process of importing updates has changed. You’ll now use a new PowerShell script to import updates.”
Transitioning to this new method will require a bit of adjustment, but the benefits of enhanced security and efficiency make it worth the effort.
“Regularly updating your devices and doing so in safest ways possible will help keep devices at your organization even more protected.”
