Article ID: 961048 - View products that this article applies to.
When an update rollup for Windows Small Business Server 2008 (Windows SBS) is released through Microsoft Update, the metadata of the update rollup will be automatically synchronized to the Windows Sever Update Service (WSUS) that is installed on Windows SBS. However, Windows SBS administrators must manually approve installation of the update rollup.
This problem occurs because update rollups for Windows SBS are not included in all levels of the auto-approve tasks that are currently configured on Windows SBS-based computers.
Update informationThis update adds update rollups for Windows SBS to the medium level and to the high level of the auto-approve tasks. After you apply this update, all update rollups for Windows SBS that are released through Microsoft Update will be automatically approved by the server WSUS.
How to obtain this updateThis update is available from the following Microsoft Update Web site:
PrerequisitesNo prerequisites are required.
