This post will discuss how FIX CBB Ring Devices are Getting CB Updates Intune Windows 10 Update Rings. Are you an early adaptor of Intune? Intune custom policies configured using CSPs are very helpful in most scenarios.

But you can get into trouble with some custom CSPs if you don’t update them promptly. This post will read, “FIX CBB Ring Devices are Getting CB Updates Intune Windows 10 Update Rings.”

Windows 10 update ring policies define the behavior of Windows 10 software updates on Intune-managed devices. You can create different policies to define CBB (Semi-Annual) and CB (Semi-Annual Targeted) channels for Windows 10 machines.

You can also use the Windows 10 update ring policy to set quality updates and Delivery Optimization (DO) behaviors of Windows 10 machines.

When you set one machine into the CB/SAT ring, it will receive a Windows 10 upgrade notification whenever Microsoft releases a new version of Windows 10.

I have a post and video tutorial about Windows 10 update ring policies.  More details are available in “How to Setup Windows 10 Software Update Policy Rings in Intune Azure Portal“.

Issue Statement

The machines are supposed to get Windows 10 1709 update/upgrade through the Current Branch for Business (CBB/SA) channel and are getting the update as part of the Current Branch channel (CB/SAT).

  • CB = Semi-Annual Targeted (SAT)
  • CBB = Semi-Annual (SA)

For example, you have two custom policies in the Intune environment to define Windows 10 update rings. These policies define the Windows 10 feature update behavior for machines.

How to Fix the Windows 10 Update Ring Issue for Intune Managed Devices?

Creating new policies to define Windows 10 update rings would be best. This can be done using the Intune console, software updates, and Windows 10 Update Rings. One policy is for Windows 10 Current Branch/Semi-Annual Targeted channel. Another approach is for Windows 10’s current branch for the business/semi-annual channel.

You need to define a new policy in the Intune console for the Windows 10 CB/Semi-Annual Channel Targeted (SAT) channel. Software updates: Windows 10 Update Rings—Semi-Annual Channel Targeted (SAT).
