Enable the Upgrades classification in ConfigMgr Current Branch (again)

Recently I was troubleshooting an environment where Windows 10 upgrades didn't came in. I did check if hotfixes were installed, which was the situation indeed.
-KB3095113: Update to enable WSUS support for Windows 10 feature upgrades (Server 2012 and 2012R2)
-KB3127032: Windows 10 upgrades are not downloaded in System Center Configuration Manager (CM1511 only)

I decided to remove the Upgrade checkbox, too put it on at later time. Then a new pop-up was displayed: Additionally, to service Windows 10 Version 1607 and later, you must install and configure KB3159706 using the guidance. Oops, I missed that one! Installed it a the WSUS/SUP and other Site server(s) and did have a look at additional steps too. This because of the following post on Microsoft TechNet: WSUS Breaks after KB3159706, released 5/5/2016

It mentions: Manual steps required to complete the installation of this update:
1. Install the hotfix and restart the WSUS/SUP server!
2. Open an elevated Command Prompt window, and run "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe postinstall /servicing" (case sensitive)
3. Select HTTP Activation under .NET Framework 4.5 Features in the Server Manager Add Roles and Features wizard.
4. Restart the WSUS service.

I skipped steps mentioned on "If SSL is enabled on the WSUS server" at first try, but they seems to be needed too!
1.Open an elevated Command Prompt window, and assign ownership of the Web.Config file to the administrators group
-takeown /f web.config /a
-icacls "C:\Program Files\Update Services\WebServices\ClientWebService\Web.config" /grant administrators:f
2. Make the following changes in the file > add the lines displayed in bold, don't make the mistake (as me) to replace those lines!
3. Add the multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" attribute to the bottom of the Web.Config file
4. Restart the WSUS service.

Start a Software Update sync in ConfigMgr and watch wsyncmgr.log and WCM.log closely. Everything should be fine now!

Didn't see Windows 10 Servicing working yet, but hope too see it in near future. On Microsoft Ignite there was no session or demo about it too, given the fact that it may be working.

Will be continued in a next blogpost :-)
