Can I install windows updates not mentioned in "System_800xA_-_Third_Party_Security_Updates_Validation_Status" ?
When I compare the list of needed updates for the servers and workstations(as stated by the wsus server) with the document "3BSE041902_OZ_en_System_800xA_-_Third_Party_Security_Updates_Validation_Status
", there is many needed updates that are not mentioned in the validation status document at all..
Updates marked with "X" or "T" I will of course not approve for installation, but what about all the updates not listed at all in the validation document?? Should I install them or not??

TBH, 99% of the time its going to be fine. ABB typically get around to updating the whitelist every few months. However, every so often, MS patches can break something. This isn't much of an issue in a development or offline system. But breaking patches on a production system can really ruin your day.

1. Critical security patches
2. Patches applicable for System 800xA, eg Microsoft Visio will not appear.
3. Patches with no known negative side effects. Lately, Microsoft has admitted issues with some patches.
What you choose to install can only be decide by yourself.
