SCUP setup question

So I have a new(ish) instance of Server 2008 R2 running WSUS 3.0 SP2, SCCM 2007, and SCUP. I followed all of the steps to get some Adobe Flash updates "published", but the documentation isn't clear on whether these updates are pushed out via WSUS or SCCM- which is it? I would like to know before I switch from my current production WSUS server to this new one.

It should also be known that while I have SCCM installed, I have no idea what to do with it. If I need to have it configured for SCUP to work, then and good starting points are appreciated. Otherwise, hold off- I'll open a separate question for just SCCM.

It seems that you published your flash update using SCCM.

SCCM can be used for lots of things but main user is to install software remotely

For report and other uses you can use

There are lots of pictures and a very active forum.

From WSUS you can update only microsoft patches. But SCCM you can update any patches.

Thanks for those links, npsingh123. I do have another question- when I try to poke around SCCM while logging into Windows as myself, it says I need to be an admin to make changes. To get around this I do a right click > run as admin. Is there a way so I don't have to do this? (Besides changing the shortcut properties to always run as admin.)

Try to add yourself to the local admin to the server.

In case you want to make some non admin account as local admin then you can use this GPO.
