MDT Factory Tool – Version 1.0.1 has been released

Today I’ve released a new version of my MDT Factory Tool. Since this version include some fixes for WSUS and Application import, I suggest that you grab it right away if you’ve been using the older version.

Whats new:

  • I’ve noticed that there’s a bug in the WSUS API when you create an automatic approval rule. When you try to execute it, the updates eligable for approval is not approved. Instead I’ve chosen to re-write the parts where the tool created a automatic approval rule, to leverage the ‘Default Automatic Approval Rule’ instead.
  • Fixed a bug where if you’ve tried to import some applications and the SourcePath was not successfully validated, the tool would still try to import those applications even though they weren’t added to the DataGridView.

You’ll find the tool and its documentation here:

  • Hey Boe, Great tool!I am curious if there is a way to exrpot a list of all NotIntalled’ patches, with the KB and Title, along with a list of all computers that require it.I am stuck patching some servers before I can finish rolling out SCCM and I require a report for my governance team. Any help would be appreciated.I have made some headway with Get-WSUSUpdatePerClient, but I seem to be unable to limit it to a specific WSUS Computer Group \All Computers\Servers\Infrasctructure Dev and Test’

    • Hi Sergey,
      You’re indeed right, that’s a bug.
      I’ll release an updated version as soon as possible.
      In the mean time I think that you can simply add the following before row 1091:
      $WSUSContentFolder = $TBWSUSContentFolder.Text
