Microsoft is changing how Windows Updates work...

This is a very interesting development, not sure how this will affect me yet as an SCCM admin but (on the surface) the idea of them back-porting the Cumulative Update model for Windows 10 to Windows 7/8.1 sounds fantastic. Personally? This time next year I hope to have all Windows 10 clients in my infrastructure anyway but if that doesn't happen then at least this should make supporting older clients much easier:

Does this mean my SUGs will shrink down to a single update per OS?!!! Almost certainly not but we shall see....

  1. Hi Zeus, I have been looking around the best structure and stumbled upon your post... how do you implement windows update in relation to cumulative update? Also, I tried to understand your method: donot split products, and put them into single package (am I correct?) when I put as single package, the package size is up to 12GB - then the issue would be to distribute it across 25 DPs, mine got problem in distributing this large package... any help would be helpful...
