Operating System Updates And Office Updates
Posted on 2006-05-15
There is a setup with 4 servers (all 2k3). 1 DC, 1 for SUS, 1 for Automatic Updates service and 1 for Microsoft Operations Manager. There are also 100 client PCs that are XP pro
If there are 2 updates on the MS site. One is an MSI file that applies to office, and another is a critical security update for XP pro.
They say the SUS server should be configured for the critical update, and the DC for the Office update.
My question is, why did the Office update have to be done via the DC ?
Why couldn't it be done via the Automatic Updates Service server ?
