/** @property */ boolean get_DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded () /** @property */ void set_DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded (boolean value)
function get DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded () : boolean function set DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded (value : boolean)
Property ValueIf true, only approved updates are downloaded. If false, all updates are downloaded after the WSUS server synchronizes with Microsoft Update.
WSUS ignores this property if HostBinariesOnMicrosoftUpdate is true.
The synchronization process downloads the update's metadata and license agreement. Once the metadata is downloaded, WSUS uses HostBinariesOnMicrosoftUpdate and DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded to determine if the update file is downloaded. If both properties are false, WSUS downloads the update file. If HostBinariesOnMicrosoftUpdate is false and DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded is true, WSUS downloads the update file only after it is approved for deployment.
Setting DownloadUpdateBinariesAsNeeded to false saves disk space on the WSUS server, but may delay deployment to the clients.
An administrator can manually approve an update or create an automatic approval rule to automatically approve an update and its revisions.
