After migrating Software Updates to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, it appears not all packages were migrated

Question2Just a quick note on an issue you might see that can be a little bit confusing if you’re not aware of what’s going on. After migrating Software Update packages from System Center Configuration Manager 2007 to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, it may appear that not all packages were migrated successfully. Usually the way this plays out is that after the migration, the admin looks at the updates package, sees fewer updates than he started with, and thinks something is wrong.

No cause for alarm though, as chances are all of the packages were actually migrated successfully. So why the discrepancy? Well there was an issue that I won’t get into here where ConfigMgr 2007 didn’t always display superseded updates correctly, so what’s happening is that the missing updates were removed because they were expired or superseded and no longer show up.

Hope this helps!
