    How to block WSUS from deploying Anniversary update


    My organization uses WSUS to push out updates. I want to block the Anniversary Update from being deployed by WSUS. I have Googled looking for a KB number for this update, but not found one yet. I have found updates on WSUS FOR version 1607, but not the update TO 1607 itself. Can someone help me out?

    The Anniversary Update is called a "Feature Update", and is not distributed by WSUS by default. You have to enable it.

    Servicing updates ARE distributed by WSUS by default, but you would have to already have it installed.

    So, according to that article, since my WSUS server is version 3.0 on a Windows 2008 R2 server, I couldn't deploy that update if I wanted to. Since I don't want to anyway, that is a good thing. This explains why I could not find it on my WSUS server when I searched. Thanks for your help.
