Quick post: Windows 10 1511 will no longer receive security updates

Posted by bartvdw on 1111/1010/2017

Update 27/11/2017: Microsoft will be providing updates to address critical and important security issues until April 2018 for Windows 10 1511 builds, but only for Enterprise and Educational SKU’s. See: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsitpro/2017/11/14/progressing-windows-as-a-service/

 

Well that was known well advance, but now it’s really there (10/10/2017): Windows 10 1511 will no longer receive security updates…

That means, if you haven’t done so yet, it’s advised to check your environment. Normally you already invested time to upgrade these build versions, but I like to double check things now and then.

  1. Your deployment solution (if you haven’t got one… ;-))
  2. Active Directory

 

For the first it’s difficult to collect all possibilities as I mainly work with Symantec Altiris (ITMS), but for AD it’s really straight forward.

 

PowerShell query for all Windows 10 builds before 1607:

Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystemVersion -like "10.0 (10*"} -Property * | FT Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemVersion -Wrap –Auto

 

Query for all Windows 10 build 1511 specific:

Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystemVersion -eq "10.0 (10586)"} -Property * | FT Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemVersion -Wrap –Auto

 

Build version translations:

  • 1511 = 10586
  • 1607 = 14393
  • 1703 = 1506
