This is the Windows Server Update Services support team blog. We cover all things relating to WSUS and Windows Update.
Just a heads up but the folks at the MSRC just announced their Advance Notification for the November 2009 Security Bulletin Release:
To help customers plan and prioritize for this month’s security updates, we wanted to let you know that we will be releasing 6 bulletins (three critical and three important) addressing 15 vulnerabilities, affecting Windows and Microsoft Office products. Customers should plan a restart for the Windows bulletins. The Office bulletins may not require a restart if the components being updated are not in use. More information about the upcoming security updates can be found on the TechNet Web site.

A few remarks on this months releases:
1. It seems KB943729 (GP Client Side Extentions) were re-released for Server 2003 x32 and x64. I could find no information on that re-release
2. Two updates are offered for Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 (KB976244 and KB976246), but they do not appear in the list at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894199 .
3. KB976749 has a new date as well, I do recall the first release either October 27 or November 2.
Hope you can correct / clarify these points.
