How can we deploy superseded (not expired) patches via sccm

Question

Our SDLC process and the maintenance window (350+ MW for 4500+ windows servers) make it impossible to patch the monthly rollups in timely fashion. Therefore, do we have any way to deploy n install superseded (not expired)patches. The patches gets expired after 90days of supersedence, therefore the patch is available in console but couldn’t deploy it

  1. If you use ADRs, then it’s just a matter of using the proper property filters, such as this screen capture: https://snipboard.io/QS4HxC.jpg

    ADR would be your best mechanism. Otherwise, you can do a search for updated with the right search criteria and then add them to a SUG, and deployment.

  2. We have monthly ADR, all the monthly rollups for all OS are already deployed for june, may and april. However, the older/superseded patches never gets populated in software center. Let me put the question in this way, can we make 2 monthly rollups present in software center at a same time. Because for our infra only latest monthly rollups are present and patches only gets installed in MW.

  3. Hi,

    By default, SCCM don’t allow to install expired or superseded patches on any of the client machines.

    Even if the superseded patches are part of your deployment then sccm will check that patches will be consider as not applicable.

  4. Exactly my point, sccm is making those patches as not applicable however in the report you can still get whoch machies requires the superseded patch. How do i make a superseded patch install? The only alternate way is to create a package n deploy aas software distribution but then it will a monthly overhead everytime

  5. You need to make changes in database by using unique update ID, search for the superseded update in DB and modify the expired/superseded entry to normal

  6. Any update on this thread pls?
