How to find Windows 10 Anniversary update in WSUS Server?

Hello,

This Tuesday the Windows 10 Anniversary update was supposed to be available through WSUS.  I did do a bit of Google foo but was unable to answer the following questions within the first 30 minutes, so I am here to ask you gentle men and women.

1.  What is the KB number of the anniversary update so I can search for it in WSUS?  Does it even have one?

2. How does one control if it is downloaded to the server at all?  Is it via the Products tab -> Windows -> Windows 10 Anniversary Update and Later Servicing Drivers ( I am thinking no)?  OR Classifications Tab -> Service Packs OR Update Rollups?  (Microsoft Marketing !?!?!)

3. Has that WSUS update that was supposed to allow for native decryption of Windows 10 update packages been fixed, or is it still very buggy and prone to messing up WSUS?

Thanks for your help and insight :-)

For number 1: The most recent roll up (after the Anniversary update) is KB3176495 from Aug 9 patch Tuesday. You might look for that.

Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade patches can be found on the Upgrades WSUS classification (First it must be enabled, see picture).

WSUS options with upgrades enabled.
After you sync with Microsoft you will see many upgrade packages, but you will approve only those that are Needed by your computers.

Thanks and sorry for the delay.  Yes you have answered my questions.  I just didn't want to comment until I have tested it, which I have not yet.

Thanks again.
