WSUS: SQL service pack four not showing up in admin console
Posted on 2006-06-30
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...and three of them it says are superseded by other updates.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.
