Update:  Tami here, I wanted to let you know that there’s a small delay in the posting of the wsusscan cab that is used so that SMS ITMU can deploy these updates. All other deployment mechanisms are already available.  We expect to see wsusscan cab become available later this afternoon and we will let you know when it is published.”

 

“Update 2: The latest wsusscan cab has now been posted.”
