WSUS Automated Maintenance ©
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.
Support is included for active subscriptions on the latest version of the software.
Simple Configuration Experience
The installer handles the configuration experience. You take the standard installation (blue USB), all defaults are selected. You take the advanced configuration (red USB), you stay in WSUS-land and we show you just how far the WSUS hole goes. Remember: all we’re offering are plentiful options.
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Shrink your WSUSContent folder’s size by declining multiple types of updates including by default any superseded updates, expired updates, preview updates, Itanium updates, and Beta updates. Additional configurable types: Language Packs, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Embedded, Non English Updates, ARM64, 32 bit Updates, Windows XP, and Sharepoint Updates.
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).
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.
Remove Obsolete Updates
This stream will use SQL code to execute Microsoft’s stored procedures that will return the update id of each obsolete update in the database and then remove it.
Computer Object Cleanup
Computer Object Cleanup (configurable, with the default of deleting computer objects that have not synced within 30 days).
Rename OS Descriptions
This stream will rename the operating system descriptions of client systems to something that is based on their editions and versions. This will rename Windows 10, Server 2008 R2, Server 2012, Server 2012 R2, Server 2016, and Server 2019.
Run the Recommended SQL database Maintenance script on the actual SQL database.
Server Cleanup Wizard
Runs the built-in Server Cleanup Wizard (SCW) to actually carry out the removal of files on the file system.
Save the Report
You can set it up to always save the report. Options for either TXT (default) or HTML.
Email the Report
You can set it up to always email the report. Options for either TXT or HTML (default). If the report fails, WAM will fall back to saving the report storing a TXT log file. The TXT log that it creates will be prepended with the notification that the email failed to send and will give the full error message for troubleshooting.
Manually Run Streams
