         Above: Example of the 'Software Upgrades' that are now available in Shavlik Patch. (Plug-in only, not available when publishing via SCUP)

     

    Symptoms

     

    If you can successfully publish the 'Software Upgrades', but they are not showing up within All Software Updates after synchronizing WSUS/SCCM you most likely need to verify the requirement shown in the resolution below.

     

    Cause

     

    The Software Upgrades have a classification of 'Update Rollups' within the SUP (Software Update Point). This needs to be enabled.

     

    The Shavlik content team chose this classification so that these updates are fully unique and unable to "Auto-publish" with Shavlik Patch to help prevent any accidental auto-upgrade of any version of Java 7u6 and after.

     

    Resolution

     

    Enable 'Update Rollups' within the SUP for SCCM.

     

    To do this:

    • In SCCM, go to the Administration section.
    • Expand Site Configuration, then click on Sites.
    • Right click on the site, then go to Configure Site Components > Software Update Point.

    • In the Software Update Point Component Properties you will need to ensure that 'Update Rollups' is checked.
