SCCM 2012 R2 – Superseded by

Hi All,

have you ever tried to discover what update supersed the one you are looking now? it is easy, don’t it. You only need to open the update properties and select supersedence information. Once done it, you’ll see the below
supersedeby1

once you have the information, you then need to discover if the update that supersede is being deployed or not..and this is not an easy task…

based on this, i’ve created a powershell script as well as a console extension that will allow you to see updates that supersede the one you selected as well as the deployment group they are with 1 click.

To do it, download the Supersededby zip file, extract and add the files to the following places:

RFL-SUP.xml to <CM12R2Console Installation Path)\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\5360fd7a-a1c4-428f-91c9-89a4c5565ce1 and <CM12R2Console Installation Path)\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\6c1e9a78-cb88-4180-b861-b91f5e9792a9  and <CM12R2Console Installation Path)\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\7b1c9fea-1e2b-458c-84e6-406cbea827fa (change the CM12R2Console to the path of the console :) )

Supersededby.ps1 to C:\Scripts\CM12R2Console on the same computer where you installed the CM12 R2 Console

Once you have done it, restart the console and you’ll see a new action group called RFL Systems and once you right click any device, you’ll also be able to see the action (see below screenshot)
supersedeby2

when you click, a powershell screen will be shown and the baseline will be created
supersedeby3

and don’t worry, if the update you selected has not being superseded by another one yet, you’ll see a message that it has not being superseded yet.
