Creating a local WSUS server to update 30+ MVM appliances



I am in the middle of building a mirror WSUS server to update 30+ MVM 2100 appliances with the approved MS patches.

So I setup a WSUS server on a Windows Server 2008 R2 and configured the syncrhonization with the upstream-server "".

The synchronization works fine but all downloaded updates are "not approved", therefore no update is triggered to be installed on the appliances.

Once I manually approve one update (using the list of approved updates) it works fine.


So my question:

Why are the updates on the not approved?

Are there only "approved by McAfee" updates located on the server?

If so, I can configure my local WSUS to automatically approve all downloaded updates.



Thanks and regards
