Instruct WSUS to skip updates on one laptop
Posted on 2012-04-05
The office domain is running WSUS on Windows Server 2003 R2. It has worked just fine until now. It's trying to push 9 different versions of the "Security Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System" to a relatively new laptop (Windows 7) that's using an old Office 2003 install. Presumably "2007 Microsoft Office System" implies Office 2007, and the updates do not apply to this laptop. I'm trying to tell WSUS, "Skip these installs on this one laptop." WSUS, however, only gives me the option to remove the update from the laptop's WSUS group and not from the individual laptop. I don't want to remove the updates from the group, they're applicable to many computers in the group. What's the best course of action?
