    Updating Windows 10 version 1903 using Configuration Manager or WSUS


    This week, we announced the release of Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows Server, version 1903. As you look to deploy these feature updates in your organization, I want to tell you about some changes we are making to the way Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and System Center Configuration Manager download feature and quality updates.

    Deploying updates using System Center Configuration Manager

    In order to deploy feature and quality updates to devices running Windows 10, version 1903 or Windows Server, version 1903 (and later), you will need to ensure that you are running the current branch of System Center Configuration Manager, which is version 1902. Then, in the Configuration Manager console, enable the Software Update point to download updates for Windows 10, version 1903 and later and/or Windows Server, version 1903 and later.

    Note: Once you make this change, updates will be available for version 1903 and later versions of the Windows 10 and Windows Server operating systems.

    Deploying updates using Windows Server Updates Services

    If you are using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to deploy updates to devices running Windows 10, version 1903 or Windows Server, version 1903 (and later), you will need to select a new product category to sync and download updates. To make this change in WSUS, open the Update Services administrator console, select Options > Products and Classifications, and, in the Products tab, select Windows 10, version 1903 and later and/or Windows Server, version 1903 and later.

    Note: Once you make this change, updates will be available for version 1903 and later versions of the Windows 10 and Windows Server operating systems.

    Frequently asked questions

    Why does this category need to be manually configured in Configuration Manager, version 1902 and WSUS?
    With Windows 10, version 1903, we are introducing new product categories to enable future support for the Unified Update Platform (UUP) for on-premises management solutions, which provides improved delivery technologies for Windows updates. A configuration change is, therefore, required for environments running the latest public release of Configuration Manager, as well as for environments using WSUS (without Configuration Manager) for updates. (Note: UUP for on-premises management solutions is not yet available. We will have future news regarding UUP, including a public preview, at a later date.)

    I am using Configuration Manager, version 1810. Can I deploy updates to Windows 10, version 1903 or Windows Server, version 1903?
    No. In order to deploy updates to Windows 10, version 1903 or or Windows Server, version 1903 devices, Configuration Manager, version 1902 or later is required. We recommend that you update to the current branch as soon as possible to ensure that your Windows 10, version 1903 devices receive the targeted quality updates.

    Will I have to select a new option each time Windows 10, Windows Server, or Configuration Manager is updated?
    No. We plan to automatically add this new category to software update point (SUP) synchronization configurations and existing automatic deployment rules (ADRs) upon upgrade to the next version of Configuration Manager in environments in which Windows 10 updates are currently being synchronized.

    I am running 1809 and don't seem to find the the System Center Configuration Manager on my system. It is not clear to me whether or not I need it to upgrade to 1903.

    That would mostly be for businesses instead. You can use this below instead to get 1903.
