Using SUS (not WSUS) I’ve installed various patches etc and I’m wondering how does one go about uninstalling patches. Win 2003 domain in native mode with XP sp2 clients.

Many thanks
Andy

In short: sus cannot do it, neither can wsus.
To mass uninstall patches use a script: ren spuninst.txt spuninst.bat
call spuninst.bat

spuninst is inside every folder $ntuinstall98963... in c:\windows.

Of course you can do it manually: add/remove software, check "show updates"...

WSUS can.  On *some* patches there is an option to Remove (found where you select the Approval level).

I'm not aware of the same option on SUS.

You'll have to Decline the update you want removed then script the uninstall as McKnife points out.
