  • Last updated on

This article assumes that devices are already under a Patching policy in Barracuda RMM and not running under Dual Scan.

  • Navigate to Patch Management.
  • Select Settings.
  • Select Synchronization.
  • Start by clicking Change on Products and Classifications
  • Ensure that Windows is selected for all versions (past, present and future) will be checked against in your environment.
  • Click Save at the bottom of the list.
  • Next, ensure Upgrades are selected in the Classification settings.
  • Under Patch Management, select Patch Approval.
  • Search for “Feature Update to Windows 10” leaving all other options as “All”.
  • Locate the patch(es) for the correct build version and installed languages on clients that are to be updated.
  • Change the approval to Install for these patches for “All Computers” or applicable approval groups individually or select multiple, then click Change Approvals.
  • Allow the next patching cycle to complete.

If the approval is changed within 24 hours of the next scheduled patching cycle the patch may not install until the following scheduled patching cycle. Also, the “Upgrades” classification can be added to an Automatic Approval to be set to install automatically. Finally, versions of Windows 10 might have an enablement package that needs to be installed. Please see MS article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4517245/feature-update-via-windows-10-version-1909-enablement-package for further information.


For
Windows 11 , follow the same steps from the above section. However, there are a couple of other intricacies to consider.

If you wish to forego upgrading to Windows 11 for the time being, you can do so by going into the Patch Management Settings, under Synchronizations and change the Products list to exclude Windows 11.
