Hi,

WSUS.  Windows Server Update Service. After installing. What should i do to download updates.
Will it download all the updates from the website no matter what OS we have?

Or is there a place we can select what to do...

Regards

Hi Sharath

WSUS will download updates when it is told to run a synchronization. You can specify the updates you want it to download and install by going to Options in the WSUS console and choosing the Products and Classifications applet. From there you are able to select the Microsoft products to get updates for, and the types of updates to download for those products.
