WSUS Automated Maintenance Moves to Paid Model

WSUS Automated Maintenance Moves to Paid Model

An awesome tool for automating maintenance for WSUS servers has moved to a pay model. The tool has been free for a long time, and the author has done a great job supporting those using it. But, as with anything popular and valuable, it takes time and effort to maintain and update.

WAM WSUS can now be purchased for a yearly subscription. The cost for the yearly subscription is $60.

For those of you who have been using WSUS Automated Maintenance (formerly known as Adamj Clean-WSUS), the End User License Agreement (EULA) states that you are allowed to use it but you must renew yearly based on when you started using the software.

The absolute last day to use any version of WSUS Automated Maintenance without an active subscription is May 31st, 2019. The subscription price is easily AFFORDABLE for any business and the licensing is usage-based.

WAM will have a rapid release cycle and as an active subscriber, you will receive update notifications so that you can download them. Support is included with your subscription and will be only given through our website.

The tool is still definitely valuable and noted as worth the subscription by those that currently use it.

Here’s what it can do…

Indexes the WSUS Database

Add WSUS Index Optimization to the database to increase the speed of many database operations in WSUS by approximately 1000-1500 times faster.

 

Remove Drivers

Remove all Drivers from the WSUS Database and keeps them clean (Default; Optional).

 

Decline Mulitple Types of Updates
