Windows 2000

SUS version 2 beta…..

I received an invitation to join this beta today. Among the advertised highlights are –
Support for Windows, Office, SQL, and Exchange patches
Reporting capabilities – deployment status about download, install and impacted machines.
Ability to uninstall patches that support uninstall
More Administrative controls – patch install, uninstall, install by a deadline, and configurable client polling intervals.
Targeting of different updates to administrator defined groups of machines.

They should really have been in version 1!

Unusual Windows Update message

After installing some patches on one of the servers I got the following message – “Your updates have been installed successfully. To complete installation you must restart your computer. Do you want to restart your computer now?” Nothing wrong with that – the weird thing is that the YES button was greyed out….I’m just wondering if its because I was using terminal services to do the upgrade but very strange.
