Unable to deploy revised publishing package with SolarWinds customization

Overview

Unable to deploy revised publishing package with SolarWinds customization during update.

Environment

  • All Patch Manager versions
  • All Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) versions

Cause

Windows Update Agent is caching update binaries and metadata. When new revision of updates are available, it updates the metadata but not the binaries. This causes the update installation to fail because the checksums are not correct.

Resolution

If you want to edit package metadata (title, description, detection rules, etc.), edit the previously published package and re-publish it again.

Note: The package revision number will be higher.

If there is a change in binary (installer, package content), publish it as new package. To make a change in the binary:

  1. Create a duplicate of the the previous published package.
  2. Edit the duplicated package content (binary).
  3. Set the previous published package in WSUS to Expire.
  4. Publish the new update.
