Approving Microsoft Updates for Removal

  • Last updated on

When you approve a Microsoft patch for removal, the patch is uninstalled. The update is removed from the default list of available updates.

The patch must support the uninstall action.

  1. In Service Center, click Patch Management > Patch Approval.
  2. To filter the patch list to display the patches you want to see, click the Advanced Filtering icon image2019-4-29 16:39:3.png and do any of the following:
    • Choose an option in Products and Classifications.
    • Choose an option in Patch Supersedence.
    • Choose an option in Release Date.
    • Type a patch name or part of a patch name in Title Contains.
    • Choose a patch status in Status.
    • Choose an approval status in Approval.
    • Choose a group in Approval Group.

    You can combine these filters to focus the list of patches. For example, if you choose a group in Approval Group and the status of Not Approved in Approval, you see a list of patches that have not been approved for that Approval Group. Or, if you choose the group All Computers in Approval Group and the status Needed in Approval, you see all the patches that are needed for a certain approval group.

  3. Click Apply.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To select one patch at a time, select the check box of each patch for which you want to change the default approval setting.
    • To select all patches, select the check box in the column header.
  5. Click Change Approvals.
  6. Do one of the following:
    • To remove the update from all computers, under All Computers, from the Approval list, select Remove.
    • To remove the update for a specific approval group, beside the Computer Group, click the link and select Remove.
  7. Do one of the following to set a deadline for when the patch should be removed:
    • To not set a deadline, ensure None is showing beside Deadline.
      Depending on how often the agent policy is set to check for updates (the default is every 22 hours), the device will remove a patch when it checks into Onsite Manager and gets the instruction to do so. The deadline is used to force the patch to be removed by a certain time in the event that the Notify for Download and Notify for Install or the Auto Download and Notify for Install option button is selected in the patch policy and the local user on the box delays the operation when the notification pops up.
    • To set a deadline but let users determine patch removal time, click None and ensure the Use client settings to determine patch installation time is selected and click OK.
    • To set a deadline but specify a patch removal time, click None and select the Install patch by the selected date and time. Then select the date and time and click OK.

    You can set a deadline in the past to force immediate installs.

  8. Click OK.
