RE: Windows SUS

Additional question regarding SUS. Is there anything special (i.e..
Software) that needs to be loaded onto the client or does the GPO just
push the updates automatically when scheduled?

I have looked into this and as far as i know there is no way to make
this work. I think they may be working on it for version 2 but i think
that got pushed back *again* to late summer now.

You can look in the content directory i think and it will have all the
patches that it has downloaded so if you know a machine is missing a
patch you can just go there and get it but otherwise it is scheduled
only.

Hi all,

We are setting up a SUS server here at our site.  We have been able to
get several machines to get their updates from it as opposed to directly
from the microsoft site.

My question is this, is there a way to set up SUS so that you can use a
browser to connect to http://susserver.mydomain.com and be able to have
it scan the machine and then download the needed updates, ala
windowsupdate.microsoft.com?

My googling has not turned up anything todate. maybe someone has
developed something like this already and is willing to share?


TIA

Raoul
