Winding Down on WSUS 3.0 Beta 2 – and things you want to know


The WSUS 3.0  Beta 2 Program is drawing to a close! 


Effective Friday, 1/19/07 the beta 2 bits and feedback submission will be offline on the WSUS 3.0 beta Connect site, as we drive to complete our Release Candidate milestone (RC).

 Of coarse, we will still be on the newsgroups and encourage all beta peer
help to continue out there, as will ours.  The only thing we’re doing is
pulling the bits from the Connect site download page and cutting the ability to submit feedback via the Connect
page on the Beta 2 build.  All will be back for RC and in the same
location:)  (https://connect.microsoft.com/site/sitehome.aspx?SiteID=110)

The beta 2 feedback, newsgroup posts and suggestions have been tremendous
and very valuable in helping us to prioritize and understand our product’s
issues and areas for improvement from our customers’ and partner’s
perspective.

To wind down the beta 2 program, the important points and dates are:

1.  On Friday, 1/19/2007 The Beta 2 bits will no longer be available for
download from this site. (The RC bits will be when they are released).

2.   Feedback submission will also be taken down on the Friday, 1/19/07 –
however the read only capability will remain so we keep an archive of the
feedback. (This will be reactivated at RC for bug submission with new
mandatory fields and attachment info required for submitting).

3.  Beta 2 test deployments will continue to have access and synch update
content from MS servers until 30 (thirty) days AFTER the release of the RC
candidate.

4.  RC release is scheduled to release 1st Quarter, Calendar Year 07 – as we
get closer you will see further announcements & information.

The WSUS 3.0 team thanks all beta 2 participants for their valuable participation in this beta,
and look forward to your continued feedback and input when the RC releases!!!


Thanks!


The WSUS 3.0 Team

    Is there a online video that I can use to bootstrap my understanding of WSUS? I’m working on my own and have not figured out how to use this tool so far.

    If someone could point me to a video where all the steps of inventory and deployment of the patches are performed, this would help me understand what I am not doing correctly.

    Thanks for any help,

    Hi,

    I have not yet downloaded/tested WSUS 3 but it looks good.

    What I found lacking in WSUS 2, unless I did not see it, was:

    – you cannot accept/reject patches by architecture (x86, x64, ia64)

    – you cannot add patches of your own (e.g. drivers).

    Happy new year!

    I’ve compared the WSUS 3 categories to WSUS 2 sp1 and WSUS 3 (BETA2) is missing some.  Why is this?  Is this just test data?  Do you plan to add these for RC?  Things like Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft Core XML Services and such.

    Thanks

    Is it possible with WSUS 3.0 to automaticaly approve certain patches like Windows Defender signatures, Outlook spyware signatures, etc.  Currently you can only rely on certain categories.

    Thanks
