WSUS Cleanup Tool
While managing my WSUS Server, I have been using the Server Cleanup Tool found under Options of the WSUS Console. After having the WSUS Console constantly crashing I engaged Microsoft Support to assist in resolving the issue. While working with support, I found out that the tool does not actually cleanup the obsolete and superseded updates as it leads one to believe that it does, we had to spend over a week running a SQL query to get the query to complete successfully and delete the abundance of obsolete and superseded updates. Once we did get it to complete successfully and the issue was resolved. My big question is, if the Server Cleanup Tool does not do the job it is supposed to do and we administrators are going to have to go through the headache of getting the SQL queries to complete successfully to cleanup these updates, why is the tool even there? I have a really crazy idea, if Microsoft is going to put out cleanup tool in the WSUS console, why not make it work?
