I am running Small Business Server 2003, which has Exchange 203 and ISA incorporated.
In WSUS under syncronisation, Products, I only have Server 2003 selected as well as XP and Office. Do I need to select Exchange Server 2003 and ISA as seperate products, or will they be detected automatically as I have SBS 2003?
Thanks for your help, Newbie Admin. John

that is normal, you need to do a first initial synch with the MS server, after that the other products will show up.
Did you install wsus seprarately on the sbs server?
If you upgrade to the R2 version of sbs 2003 wsus is integrated in the management console.

normally the wsus is adminisered from the management console.
If you are using the direct web interface you should see 'all MS products' with all the ms products on it.
After that you can select/deselect the products you want, but you first need to click on 'synchronise now'
