Hi guys,

We currently run wsus 3.1 on a Windows 2008 Server. Our WSUS service is set to automatically download updates direct from MS. I've noticed we still haven't received Vista Service Pack 2 as an update, has it been released via Windows Update?

We have a few Vista machines here and i'm hoping to get the onto SP2 soon. I've had a play around and our wsus server seems to be up to date.

Cheers

I found that for sp2 to appear in windows update I first had to install all updates currently there. i.e. I was putting off installing IE8, but after I installed it SP2 appeared in the list.

Thank you for your help guys. I've managed to fix the issue. There was a check box left unticked for Service Pack downloads (somehow?!) - cheers.
