SCCM does not synchronize with WSUS/SUP updates

Updated March 11th, 2016


Packages publish and display correctly in WSUS. When you synchronize WSUS/SUP and Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), some packages do not display in the SCCM console. 


  • All Patch Manager versions
  • SCCM 2007
  • SCCM 2012


  • You have not created a custom search folder for the updates.
  • You have not created a full synchronization.
  • The product is not synchronized between WSUS and SCCM.


Perform one or all of the following actions.

Create a custom search

If you use SCCM 2007, create a new search folder for the Vendors in Site Database > Computer Management > Software Updates > Update Repository > Search Folders.

If you use SCCM 2012, create a new search for the Vendor in Software Library > Overview > Software Updates.

See View third-party packages published in SCCM in the SCCM console for details.

Ensure that the product is selected in the products list

  1. In SCCM, navigate to Administration > Site Configuration > Configure Site Components > Software Update Point > Products.
  2. Select the products you want to synchronize between WSUS and SCCM.

Perform a full synchronization

  1. Ensure there is a Patch Manager instance installed on the SCCM server. 
  2. Log in to SCCM.
  3. Navigate to Administration > Site Configuration > Configure Site Components > Software Update Point > Classifications.
  4. Change a classification and then change it back to initiate a full synchronization.
