WSUS Automated Maintenance for School Systems

by | Last updated 2023.07.25 | Published on 2019.07.10 | Blog

WAM is the best solution for system administrators working in school systems where thousands of computers need to be maintained. Keeping up with not only patching systems, but also including the maintenance that needs to happen on the patch management system itself can be a full-time job. Using WSUS on its own or even while using it in conjunction with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), SolarWinds Patch Manager, or other patch management system that revolves around WSUS, there’s a good chance you could run into error issues.

With WAM, the software runs daily, letting it work in the background while you attend to other issues. When the maintenance is complete, it will send you an email log to show you what has been done.

School systems across the world rely on WAM for their automated maintenance.


“While spending hours searching the internet looking for WSUS fixes and assistance, we came across WAM. There was great feedback on the WSUS Automated Maintenance software. After a test period from the advice of the engineer, my technical team loved it. We forged ahead and did 89 of our servers and it cleaned up space and WSUS is working much better.”

Running the software daily will increase the speed of many database operations, keep the database clean, shrink the WSUSContent folder by declining multiple updates and clean out the synchronization logs that have built up.

When you work in a school system that can have hundreds of computers in each school and multiple schools in the system—WSUS maintenance can be a headache. Priced at only $90 USD a year, (that’s less than $8 a month), WAM is an affordable tool for automated WSUS maintenance and cleanup.

Easily purchase WAM online and save time.

WSUS Automated Maintenance (WAM) system was developed by AJ Tek and is used by system administrators worldwide—from Australia to Antarctica. With over 50,000 unique downloads, it’s the preferred method of WSUS maintenance worldwide.
