Updates for WSUS available today


Hi Folks-


Just wanted to let you know – today is the day two updates will be available to you to assist in your management and deployment of WSUS 3.0.


First ,we are making an update available for WSUS 2.0 SP1, which will create a 3.0 “self update tree” on your WSUS 2.0 /SP1 servers.  The self-update tree update contains the code for the WSUS 3.0 client.  That means, once this update is approved and installed on your WSUS 2.0 SP1 server, 2.0 clients “mapped” to that server will be “self updated” to the 3.0 client the next time the client ‘checks in’ with the WSUS 2.0 SP1 server.  The server remains WSUS 2.0 SP1, while the clients are able to update themselves from the server, to the 3.0 version.   We did this to ensure customers had a distributable method to update their clients and realize  new performance optimizations, but still manage the plan and timing to upgrade the servers to WSUS 3.0.  This update is classified as a critical update for all server categories on which WSUS 2.0 SP1 is supported, with the exception of SBS R2.


Additionally, WSUS 3.0 will available via WSUS today, classified as an “update” and targeted at Windows 2003 SP1 for WSUS 2.0, WSUS 2.0 SP1 products.  There will be 2 updates since 3.0 now natively supports x64bit. They are:


Windows Server Update Services 3.0 (KB935524)
Windows Server Update Services 3.0 for x64-based Systems (KB935524)


 


Again, this update will be classified as an “update” targeted at Windows 2003 SP1 for WSUS 2.0 and WSUS 2.0 SP1.   Also the update will be used to upgrade WSUS 3.0 RC to RTM on the Windows 2003 server. 


 


Hope this helps and happy updating!

    Ping back: SBS, WSUS 2, Windows XP & the SVCHost Issue…

    Any news on being able to distribute KB927891 v3 via WSUS?

  12. Sudheer [MSFT] says:

    KB927891 is also available via WSUS from today.

    Please sync WSUS server and you should be able to see the update for Windows XP/2003 platforms.

  13. Cody says:

    I have SBS R2 with SP2 applied, why will it not be classified as critical for R2?

  14. susan says:

    Because Cody..that’s a big update to automagically let it apply.  YOU can install it manually.

    The reason is Cody those of us who have been manually installing it on our SBS boxes haven’t had it install 100% all of the time and the fact that the install bundle doesn’t include the report viewer.

    I personally didn’t want it.  I want YOU to install it when YOU want to not when MU or WSUS wants you to.

    how do we authorize the new client in wsus 2.0 sp1? i don’t see any update or patch, or is it automatic?

    TiA!

  16. John Bielot says:

    For those of us running WSUS on Win2K servers (plan to upgrade 2nd 1/2 this yr), can/will we install the update that creates  the 3.0 self-update tree, since I can’t upgrade to 3.0 on Win2K?

  17. John J says:

    Where is this KB935524?  Can someone explain why Microsoft has nothing on this and why this blog talks about the patch but nothing?

  18. Chris says:

    Typical Microsoft….  2.0 was working great.  3.0 is released Oooo all of a sudden svchost.exe is taken 100% of the CPU resources.  O well what can you do but go with the flow.

    I like the site, it helped!!!!!

  19. luc says:

    So I’m not sure if  I understand this, I see this in WSUS 2.0, but is it a sp1 client update? or is it ver. 3?  the kb says do d/l version 3 — but so far i have the server itself run that approved patch, and it installs fine, but when looking at the logs it still recognizes it as 2007-05-23 13:25:25 1032 79c Agent  * WU client version 5.8.0.2694  instead of what suppose to be 7.x …any clues?

    Windows Server Update Services 2.0 SP1 Client Update (KB936301)

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936301

  20. No-one says:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936301 – is this applicable to WSUS 2.0 (no SP1)? Do I need to manually install it on WSUS 2.0 (no SP1)? Please clarify.

  21. John says:

    I’m lost.  Is this update shown here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936301  supposed to be applied to all workstations in our org?

    The blog mentions an update for wsus server which will create the tree so clients can self update.

    So are we pushing the update or are we creating the tree?

  22. John says:

    Okay.  wsus is showing that only the wsus server itself needs this update (936301)

    However, after running this update on the WSUS server, the client is still reporting ver. 5.8.0.2607.

    If I manually run this update on the CLIENT, the version shows ver. 7.0.6000.374.

    What am I missing?

  23. John P says:

    I’m in the same boat as John. I installed the update described in KB936301 (WindowsUpdteAgent30-x86.exe) three days ago. I check the WUAUENG version number today on some random client and they still show 5.8.0.2607. I thought that 936301 added a 3.0 self update tree to WSUS 2.0 SP1 so my clients could go to 3.0 while my server stayed @ 2.0 SP1?

    I delivered the 927891 MSI update to about 150 clients which immediately went berserk with 100% CPU issues. I thought that the combination of the 3.0 client and MSI update was supposed to solve this so I’ve been freaking. Turns out the clients haven’t self updated yet.

    What’s the solution WSUS guys?

  24. John says:

    It works!  

    Previously, I had run the executable manually in our test environment on our wsus server.  This did not work.

    I just applied the update to our prod wsus server via wsus, (not manually) and now the clients are downloading the latest 3.0 client.

  25. No-one says:

    Should I install the update on WSUS 2.0 (NO SP1). I can’t find any information on this.

  26. shoban says:

    hi,

    it good i have updated my wsus 2.0 to 3 .0 every , its better before the version . here i have some problems , i am facing

    in wsus server its showing a pc requires some updates , but in the pc its not showing any downloaded and ready to install popup.( i have run the command like wuauclt.exe /detectnow)

    this is not for a pc iam facing for more than 10 pc’s.

    so plz any one plz suggest.

    any way like to puch the patches for a particular group of machine.

  27. PWoj says:

    —Quoting the article—

    The self-update tree update contains the code for the WSUS 3.0 client.  That means, once this update is approved and installed on your WSUS 2.0 SP1 server, 2.0 clients "mapped" to that server will be "self updated" to the 3.0 client the next time the client ‘checks in’ with the WSUS 2.0 SP1 server.  The server remains WSUS 2.0 SP1, while the clients are able to update themselves from the server, to the 3.0 version.

    ——————————

    Will the client automatically reboot when it receives this self-update?  If so, can the update be rolled out to servers and PCs in a controlled fashion, like other updates (Detect Only, Mixed, etc)?

  28. NeedSomeGuidance says:

    Can someone help identify the order in which the updates are to be done.  In our WSUS I currently see the KB927891 for servers and desktops; KB936301 for the WSUS server; and of course, the WSUS update (the 3.0 upgrade) KB935524 to take the server from 2.0 to 3.0.  I understand that KB935524 should be the last thing done, but I do not know the order of the first two installs to be done.  I want to ensure the order is correct to prevent any potential negative impact to our systems.  Thanks!

  29. TK says:

    For NeedSomeGuidance,

    According to my update history on the 24th May, KB927891 was installed first and then KB936301 successfully. Hope this helps.
