Dear WSUS users,
I am very excited to announce the release of WSUS 3.0 SP1, now live and ready for download! This is a significant release that represents a huge milestone for all involved and we thank you greatly for your feedback and support throughout the life cycle of this project.
WSUS 3.0 SP1 can be installed stand-alone or as an in place upgrade to WSUS 2.0 SP1 or WSUS 3.0 RTM.
The improvements that SP1 offers compared to WSUS 3.0 RTM include:
· Support for Windows Server 2008
· Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2008
· Enhanced bulk approval capability, preserving existing approvals
· Support for separate proxy servers and ports for SSL and non SSL traffic
· Better performance
· Detailed computer reports that can be imported to Excel
For those of you who are still on WSUS 2.0, a description of the new features in WSUS 3.0 RTM is quite long and can be found in the overview guide.
WSUS 3.0 SP1 is now located at the Microsoft Download Center. It will also be released via Microsoft Update, the Catalog, and WSUS in late March. To download and to obtain installation instructions, please visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=F87B4C5E-4161-48AF-9FF8-A96993C688DF&displaylang=en

Oops, had to restart the SQL database and it's fine now.
WSUS User - Thanks, that was the problem.
Yep - I have the audacity of having a SMTP password of 12 or more characters - changing it to "123" temporaily in the UI fixes this. Crappy testing Microsoft!!!
I'm still looking for integration of WSUS 3.0 with SBS Sever Management console and daily report. Any chance that is in the offing?
Updated a very default install of WSUS 3 and had no problems.
Not exactly thrilled with the install. Before I can run the install it checks for a gig of free space on the C drive. I'm not even going to install this update there, but it still checks.
If I'm lucky I'll have space cleared for the update today.
Upgrade went smooth for me.
How about some enhanced reporting in the next SP?
It deleted my computer groups and group memberships! The computers show up in the All Computers and Unassigned Computers groups. Is it supposed to do that? I found nothing in the docs saying it would. It seems to have kept the update approvals and synchronization history.
I just got back from a nice family vacation to Florida (Orlando & Cocoa Beach). The weather was fabulous
Så er der opdateringer ude til WSUS 3.0. med denne nye servicepack som kan installeres som standalone
I just downloaded WSUS 3.0 SP1 a while ago and will install it on my Windows Server 2008 machine. Here
To be honest I am not sure if this is the best way to pose these questions so please forgive my ignorance in advance.
How can I control where the automatic updates are downloaded to?
It appears that they seem to create a temporary folder on the volume with the largest amount of available capacity.
Some of my volumes are special purpose and I do not want the update files even if they are temporary to be created there.
Is there a chance that the update files will actually have the temporary attributes set so that we can identify them as temporary files in the first place?
If I tighten the security the update process fails the install with an erro code 0x05.
Is there any way I can exclude a volume or volumes from being eligible to be used by the update process?
Thank you for your kind attention.
SP1 installed flawlessly on my 2K3 R2 server. No probs at all. Thanks Microsoft!
Can WSUS SP1 be installed on Windows server 2008 "we server edtion" so I do not need to by any CAL ?
I found that there was some cal needed on server 2003 web edition for the database backend of WSUS but that limitation on database is no normally more there for server 2008..
I cannot found that information confirming that anywhere...
Why Windows Update in Windows Vista show me old Windows Live Products (optional update) dated november 2007 ? Why Windows Live Writer appears 2 time: 1 dated november 2007 and oner dated 2008 ?
Why these products after 2 minutes are vanished from Windows Update? What happens? Bug in Windows Update?
