Features of WSUS Automated Maintenance©
Indexes the WSUS Database
Add WSUS Index Optimization to the database to increase the speed of many database operations in WSUS by approximately 1000-1500 times faster.
Remove all existing drivers from the WSUS Database trimming down the number of updates in the database. If the Drivers classification is checked, new driver updates will sync and will be kept under control (Default; Optional).
Decline Multiple Types of Updates
Shrink your WSUS Content folder’s size by declining multiple types of updates including by default any superseded updates, preview updates, expired updates, and more.
Super Easy Installation
Guided installer for a simple installation experience. It also comes with an unattended installation procedure for easy deployment to multiple systems, or for server core installs.
Compress Update Revisions
This stream will use SQL code to execute Microsoft’s stored procedures that will return the update id of each update revision that needs compressing and then compress it.
Backup the WSUS Database
Backs up the WSUS database (WID or Local SQL Server). Remote SQL Servers should have an alternative method like an enterprise backup solution already so WAM will not back them up.
Remove Declined Updates
Remove declined updates from the WSUS Database.
Clean Synchronization Logs
Clean out all the synchronization logs that have built up over time (configurable, with the default keeping the last 14 days of logs).
Computer Object Cleanup
Computer Object Cleanup (configurable, with the default of deleting computer objects that have not synced within 30 days).
WAM’s Reported Record Removals

After 12 months of issues with PC’s not reporting in, 2 rebuilds of WSUS, and battling to keep it running, we bought your product. I wish I had done so sooner, The installation took approx 18hrs after which all my issues have gone. PCs are checking in during all PCs are present.
This is the way WSUS should work. Without this script it simply didn’t work at all for us and we were ready to give up and use a third party solution instead. The WAM script cleared up all the issues we were having and now WSUS is responsive and does what it is supposed to do. Great product, easy to install and configure.
Thanks AJ Tek Team!
You have taken the sting out of managing our WSUS infrastructure – what a great set-and-forget solution; it’s a must-have for all MSPs who like to do things right! I’d suggest anyone dipping their toe in reads your blogs first – it’s a perfect recipe and will save them countless hours.Gerard Lill – Eclipse Technology Services
I have been working with WSUS for over 10 years. WAM is absolutely fantastic. It simplifies the maintenance of the WSUS server, it’s like magic.
The Update Service Management Console is now lightning fast and never comes up with the ‘reset’ option.
Support, if needed, is fantastic. This software really does what it claims to do. I would recommend it to all WSUS administrators.
I have been using this software for over 3 years now, like many, many customers when it was free. It is simply the best possible maintenance software that exists and is a must for a every WSUS system. Totally worth the price. This software should be bundled with WSUS by default. No other WSUS script on the market even comes close to what this software can do and is still getting better, year after year.
Thumbs UP ! Keep up the good work.
