Since the introduction of SCCM 2012 we have receive the capability of removing software updates automatically from the Distribution Points.
Either you want to have a healthy environment by removing all expired updates (saving valuable disk space/network usage …) or you just want to exclude a update for company specific reasons, there is a very easy way to do this.
Here is how you do this process:
- Navigate to the All Software Updates node under Software Library:
Add Criteria -> Select Expired
You can also add the date or other criteria to make your scan more accurate.
But i suggest leaving it like this so you will have a complete overview of everything that is Expired.
- Click Add, leave the default value as “Yes”, and click search
You should get something like this:
From here you can select any of the Expired Updates and Right Click on it and go to Edit Membership.
- Available Software Groups List should pop where you can see all Update Groups where any of the selected updates from the list view are members. Simply deselect the selected check boxes.
By Click OK you will remove all of the expired updates from the selected Update Groups.
