Understanding windows updates / WSUS on windows SBS 2011 standard with GFI Max patching
Posted on 2014-11-02
I am using GFI Max for patching windows computers.
I have an SBS 2011 standard server that I took over a few months ago and installed Max. I am learning Max, so this may be a Max issue and - or sbs WSUS question.
Max says 6 patches are missing:
- Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2853952)
- Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2985461)
- Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2888049)
- Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2893519)
- Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2928562)
Important Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2922229)
Windows update on the server says the server is up to date:
Windows is up to date | there are no updates available for your computer
Most recent check for updates: today at 3PM
Updates were installed: 1/17/14
You receive updates: managed by your system administrator
1) that updates were installed line is updates installed by windows update, not Max?
2) You receive updates managed by sys admin: is that wsus? Or standard phrases?
There IS a role for WSUS running on the server. But I do no know how to use WSUS and rely on Max.
I was thinking that I could use windows update as a double check to see if Max says the server is patched, I can use windows update to see if it agrees. But at this point it's the other way around - Max says patches are needed and Windows Update says the server is up to date.
Do I want to disable or uninstall wsus? or something else?
