Guys, does the native WSUS console show the 3rd party updates published to a WSUS server (2012 R2)? I know PM console has it's own 3rd Party update view but I'd like to be able to see this in the WSUS console. For example, using powershell (WSUS 2012 R2) I can see 3rd party update under the classification security udpate:
However, there is no visibility via the WSUS console. Is this expected even though the 3rd party update is published fine?
Yes, that is the case with the patch manager console. You cannot see in the WSUS console, only in the patch manager can you see the third party applications.
