WSUS Expired Updates Return After Clean Up Wizard on Replica Servers
Posted on 2010-09-22
We are running WSUS 3.0 on a number of Server 2003 machines that replicate with the main office. We have recently been noticing that some updates from 2009 that have long since expired have been showing up on our downstream WSUS replica servers. Yesterday I ran the WSUS Cleanup Wizard which removed the unwanted updates from each server, but this morning these updates were back again. These updates cannot be delclined (the option is greyed out). The only way I have been able to get rid of them is through the Cleanup Wizard. I am assuming the updates appeared again this morning when the branch servers replicated with the main office server. These updates do not show up on the main office WSUS server console. Any ideas on what to do to make them go away permanently?
