WSUS:  SQL service pack four not showing up in admin console

Hi,
I finally broke down and installed WSUS last week. It's handling about 200 PCs and working pretty well.
Except in the WSUS console it's not offering me any SQL Service Packs to approve.
When I search all updates and filter on the string "SQL" the view it returns shows just 4 entries...

Critical Update for SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (Windows)r... Critical Updates      4/26/2005      Mixed
Cumulative Patch for SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (Windows)      Security Updates      11/13/2003      Mixed
Windows Server Update Services Service Pack 1      Service Packs      6/27/2006      Mixed
Update for SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (SharePoint) on Windows...      Updates      11/29/2005      Mixed

...and three of them it says are superseded by other updates. I assume other folks running WSUS see an entry for SQL SP4 when they do a view on "SQL".

In sycronization options under Products I have All SQL Products selected and I've done several syncs.  Any idea where I'm going wrong?  My goal is to be able to deploy SQL SP4 using WSUS.

Make sure you set the Approval filter to "All Updates" as well; by default, the permissions for service packs are set to "not approved".
In addition, check if Service Packs are selected under Update Classifications in the Options page.

Thanks but I have All Updates, All Updates, Any Time set for my view. And I also have Service Packs selected. Here's what I have under Update Classifications....

Critical Updates
Security Updates
Service Packs
Update Rollups
Updates

 WSUS tells me I have 905 updates and I do see many other service packs in the admin console just not SQL for some reason.

It seems MS has not released any SQL updates through WSUS so what I'm seeing is normal. Can anyone running WSUS confirm this?

What you should see classified as SQL Service Packs on a freshly synchronized WSUS is the SP1 for WSUS (KB919004) (which you have), and SP1 for SQL 2005 (KB913090).
