New install of WSUS - should I approve ALL old updates?
I just installed WSUS 3.0 SP1 and have it up and running. I have a few test computers connected to it and we'll see how it goes over the next week or so.
My question though is whether I should approve all of the 3,000 or so updates that are waiting for approval? I have so far only approved a couple hundred based on the PCs that I have joined to the server. I looked at their needed list and approved those for each computer.
But WSUS is going to nag me about updates I haven't dealt with yet so I wonder if I should approve all of the past ones to catch that up?
When I roll this out company wide, I plan on making sure each computer is updated fully from MS directly before adding them to WSUS so I can manage some backlog that way. So once they join WSUS there won't be but maybe a couple updates that need to be done that are all just a week or two old.
