Excluding specific updates from Automated Patching in Azure ARK

Matthew Rangitaawa 0 Reputation points

We have some Virtual Machines in Azure Ark and are wanting to automate the patching every month by creating schedules. The problem is, we need to exclude the .Net updates and the only way is by having the KB number of the .Net Update every month. Is there another way to achieve this goal or is there simply no way around it?

    @Matthew Rangitaawa , Thank you for posting this question on Microsoft Q&A.

    This feature of selectively including updates based on software/product which are part of OS is not available with Azure Automation Update management or with the newer Update Management Center. The only way to categorically use filter on package is based on the package classification (Critical, Security etc.). As you rightly mentioned, you may use the KBIDs to exclude specific packages with update management schedules.

    I would suggest posting this as an idea on the feedback forum for "update management center" so that it can be considered in future - Update Management Feedback

    Hope this helps.
