    Update view not working anymore

    justinm

      I have an update view called Microsoft Updates that is meant to include any updates that sync through Microsoft Update (basically, everything that isn't third party). The criterion is:

       

      Update source is Microsoft Update

       

      That's it. If I go into that update view and look at Unapproved/Any, nothing shows up. If I go to All Updates and look at Unapproved/Any, there are 6 patches with 3 KB numbers:

       

      KB2970228

      KB2975331

      KB2975719

       

      This happened earlier in the month, as well, when the replacement for the pulled update came down and when the Silverlight patch came down. The only thing this server syncs from is Microsoft Update, so why aren't these showing up in my update view?

          I think I'm being confused by this statement. If the only thing the server syncs from is Microsoft Update, then why the need for a filtered view of updates that basically is designed to show ALL updates? (Btw, you can quick view this information by enabling the Source column in the All Updates view and filtering on the value "MicrosoftUpdate".)

          There are two sets of updates for this collection. One that is Expired; One that is current. Here's a view from my All Updates listing:

          The *expired* updates are automatically filtered from the custom view with the filter set. (They would not be filtered if using the All Updates view and filtering on the Source column as described previously. Here's a view from your custom view definition that I recreated on my system:

          9-3-2014 9-54-27 AM.png

          If you have *NO* updates in your custom view, then that begs the question of where are the 9/2/2014 versions of those updates. Possibly, since you posted only an hour ago, the updates released yesterday had not yet been synchronized to your WSUS server. Or possibly your Patch Manager console needs a refresh?
