Aufgrund der anhaltenden Probleme mit der Updatekomponente des SCCM-Systems empfehlen wir Ihnen die Verwendung eines eigenen Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) anstelle des SCCM Features.
Sie können hierzu das zentrale Angebot des IT Centers nutzen [1], wenn Sie nicht beeinflussen wollen,
welche Patches installiert werden. Wenn Sie steuern wollen, welche Patches in Ihrem Netzwerk verteilt werden und Bedarf an einem entsprechenden
Reporting haben, müssen Sie eine eigene WSUS Instanz verwenden.
