Patching change for Windows 10 version 1903

For the past few years as an SCCM admin, I have become accustomed to Microsoft’s semi-annual release of the latest version of Windows 10 and patching it is usually seamless and does not require making any changes to WSUS / SCCM.

However, it seems that Microsoft has made a significant change starting with version 1903 and beyond, system administrators of WSUS / SCCM must select “Windows 10, version 1903 or later” in order for those systems running it to be updated.  See Microsoft’s announcement here.

Special shout out to Bryan Dam ( and Mary Jo Foley ( for bringing this to the attention of the masses.  Saves me a support call to Microsoft that’s for sure!
