Here's a quick overview: We have several Windows 10 LTSB 1607 deployments running and we want to manage them using SCCM. The main goal is that we want to push security updates from SCCM onto the devices. Both my SCCM server and my domain server are running Windows Server 2016. SCCM has been updated to version 1806.

I can add all the devices (and my other devices, like my servers that are running) to my domain and I can install the clients automatically. I can also install programs on all the devices using Software Center. When it comes to software updates there seems to be a problem. With all of my LTSB devices, there aren't any updates that show up as being required, while all my other devices all have a handful of updates that they need. After running a summarization, nothing changes.

I checked which updates I should install on them and none of them are required indeed (but they do show up when listing all of the software updates, meaning that WSUS is indeed pulling them in).

I try to manually install the updates one by one, and they all succeed without errors. When I go back to SCCM they don't show up as being installed after another summarization.

I uninstall all of the newly-installed updates and run a third summarization, and again, nothing changes.

Note: I also tried to install the updates by using the "Check For Updates" option in the Windows 10 Settings. There, it also installed the security updates

Now, my question is: What causes those updates to not show up as required, and how can I fix this?

  • Can somebody add the tag for SCCM-1806? It doesn't exist. – marijnr Oct 26 '18 at 13:56

It looks like you did not enable Windows 10 LTSB as product within SUP.

You can enable it by:

=> Open SCCM Console => Goto Administration => Select Site Configuration => Sites => Select your site => Configure Site Components => Software Update Point => Products => Select Windows 10 LTSB => OK

Remeber to trigger a full update cycle. You can do this via: Software Library => Software Updates => All Software Updates. In the top ribbon menu you'll find Synchronize Software Updates => Yes

SCCM Console Product selection

  • The product was already enabled. Not having those enabled will prevent the updates from showing up, but they DO show up. The updates are just appearing as not required – marijnr Nov 12 '18 at 9:06
  • @marijnr Can you upload some log files please? First trigger a full update sync within sccm and after about 30 minutes get the wsyncmgr.log from the server. On the client: WUAHandler.log, UpdatesDeployment.log, ScanAgent.log – Hupfauer Nov 12 '18 at 13:02
