ConfigMgr Superseded By Supersedes Columns | SCCM | Configuration Manager

Let’s learn ConfigMgr Superseded By Supersedes Columns available in the admin console. This is a less-known fact. I noticed these new column options when I installed the SCCM 2010 rollup update.

I have seen many questions related to the sequence of hotfix installation. Many admins (including me) are confused about which hotfix should be installed first if there is more than one hotfix available.

The following is the list of hotfixes (screenshot below) that can confuse SCCM admins. You will need to read many KB articles to understand which patches supersede or are superseded by other patches.

Another perfect example that can confuse is the list of hotfixes when Microsoft releases the revised update rollup. Two rollup updates could be listed in the console updates and servicing node. Of course, this could confuse many admins, and it isn’t easy to understand which rollup should be installed.

Supersedes and Superseded by

The supersedes column contains some information for the rollup update KB600089. The latest rollup of 2010 supersedes the two hotfixes released a few months before. Hence, you don’t need to install those hotfixes (KB4594176 & KB4594177).

Superseded by column for ConfigMgr 2010 Hotfix KB4594177, which has information about the latest rollup update and provides the information that KB600089 supersedes KB4594177. So, you don’t need to install Hotfix KB4594177.

Additional Information about Supersedes

There is another place where you can get Superseded by and supersede details for each hotfix available in the Updates and Servicing node. This part of the console is called the details pane.
