Starting today, the WSUS administrator will notice that the IMF Filters now supersede each other instead of direct expiration of every update. A review of the process over the last couple of months allowed us to identify that the expiration release model just wasn't working. The new model allows a better control of ensuring that an IMF update will always be available even if the release window for the new update is missed.
The new release model will be as follows:
- The new update (N) will supersede the previous update (N-1) when viewed by the WSUS administrator
- N-3 updates and older will be expired.
