Use the Server Cleanup wizard to delete expired updates and revisions from the WSUS server. The wizard configures a threshold for the number of days that the WSUS server retains non-reporting computers in the Patch Manager Administrator Console. When you are finished, you can schedule a clean-up task to run each day, week, or month. 

  1. Log in to the Patch Manager Administrator Console as an administrator.
  2. In the navigation pane, expand Enterprise > Update Services and select the WSUS server.

    In the following example, SPM-MGOM is the WSUS server.


  3. In the Actions pane, click Server Cleanup Wizard. 
  4. Select the cleanup options to perform on the WSUS server, and click OK.


  5. Complete the Task Options Wizard to schedule and execute the cleanup task for the WSUS server.
