Security Update MS10-019 isn't displayed on the Configuration Manager console for some operating systems


Security Update MS10-019 (KB979309) is not displayed on the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 console for the following operating systems:
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

Note This security update is visible for the Itanium versions of these aforementioned operating systems.


KB979309 bundles another update, KB978601, for the affected operating systems and is superseded by KB2653956. By design in Configuration Manager, no superseded updates are synced. This causes a condition where the KB978601 update is not synced because KB979309 contains that update for the operating systems that are mentioned in the "Symptoms" section. And KB979309 is not synced because it has been superseded by KB2653956.

Note This behavior may not affect all System Center 2012 Configuration Manager customers. In this version of the product, there is an option that allows for syncing of superseded updates and to keep them for three months by default. If that option is selected, this issue does not occur in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. 


To work around this issue, manually download the update, and then deploy it by using a System Center Configuration Manager package. You will have to configure the command line for the program correctly so that it installs silently and does not prompt for user input.
