Does SUS deploy available service packs first, then reboot, then install any available patches?

I am trying to determine the process by which a Windows 2000 sp2 Server will recieve its updates, how many times it will reboot etc...

SUS deploys what the clients are requesting, so the procedure is pretty much the same as when updating from the MS website.

If you are running SP2 you'll need to manually config SUS first since you need SP3 or greater for Group Policy to take ahold.

How many servers are you deploying this to?  You can configure the settings to reboot automatically or wait for your approval for the reboot.

Not sure yet how the service packs work with SUS since we haven't approved any of those yet.
