Strike Three for WSUS

Microsoft Ignores Deferral Settings, Forces Win10 Updates

For the third time in the last few months, Microsoft pushed updates to Win10 machines that had deferral preferences set. Windows 10 versions 1507, 1511, 1607, and 1703 have been affected and pushed to 1709, whether a user wanted it or not.

Microsoft’s response to this invasive error? Just try rolling the update back – oh, and good luck with that.It’s time to accept that WSUS can’t be trusted to automate patching. With major downsides like no third-party updates and a complex user interface, WSUS has now struck out with this latest failing. It’s time for a better way to manage updates.
