WSUS 3.0 updates

WSUS 3.0 updates

I did not see a forum for WSUS 3.0 so I though I would give this a shot. I am trying to patch a few servers using WSUS, on WSUS I see that a specific application server needs 9 patches but when I go to the server and go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com it shows that the server needs 13 updates. I made sure that the WSUS server had the 4 patches missing downloaded and available but still WSUS does not recognize that the server needs these patches. Any ideas why this is?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

RE: WSUS 3.0 updates

Specifics might help, but sometimes one update superseeds another.

For example,
MS08-052 - GDI+ Vunerability could allow remote code execution
Two KB's apply...
... but only the most recent one is actually required.

The other thing is how WSUS is configured.  Updates have to be approved for detection (ver 3.0 is a little different than 2.x for this, but the concept is still the same).  Also, WSUS may be configured to only apply security patches and updates, but not drivers.  And one of the "patches" you are applying is a driver.

The WindowsUpdate service provided at the Micro$oft site will not have any of the rules applied.

Hope this helps
