AnnouncementLooks like the Configuration Manager team announced yesterday that On April 12th, 2011, SMS 2.0 will reach the end of its extended support lifecycle and at that time the Security Update Inventory Tool (SUIT) or Extended Security Update Inventory Tool (ESUIT) for SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 will be retired and will no longer be available for download.  Updated catalogs will not be provided after that date.

You are encouraged to begin planning your upgrade to Configuration Manager 2007 to deploy Software Updates.  For customers remaining on SMS 2003 SP3 the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU) is also an option.

For all the details see this announcement.
