Update rollups for Windows Small Business Server 2008 that are released through Microsoft Update are not automatically approved

Symptoms

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.

Cause

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.
