Can you manually add updates to a WSUS server?
Posted on 2007-03-29
Is it possible to manually add updates that are not listed in WSUS to a WSUS server? Here's the scenario:
One of my clients has their own WSUS server to manage update distribution. Currently, it synchronizes with Microsoft Update, which is fine, however there are some updates missing. Microsoft update doesn't have all of the updates listed on there, for example, the Compatability Pack for Office 2003. If someone makes a document in Office 2007, users of Office 2003 need a compatability pack to read it - this is not listed on Microsoft Update.
I would like to know if it is possible to add updates that are not listed on Microsoft Update to a WSUS server. It is WSUS 2.0, as I am not about to put a release candidate/beta software (WSUS 3.0) on a production network.
