Server 2003 Root Certificates Update

Hi all, I have the following situation.

I have users who connects to a terminal server running Server 2003 R2 Standard. There is one particular website that is an HTTPS website that is unable to connect, the company says that we have an outdates SSL cert for their site.

They referenced this MS KB, and I've ready it a few times, however a bit lost on what needs to be done.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125

The part about 2003 says The automatic root update mechanism is enabled on Windows Server 2008 and later versions, but not on Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 supports the automatic root update mechanism only partly. (This is the same as the support on Windows XP.) And because the root update package is intended for Windows XP client SKUs only, it is not intended for Windows Server SKUs. However, the root update package may be downloaded and installed on Windows Server SKUs, subject to the following restrictions.

I have looked on the Windows Update Catalog, and it only shows desktop SKU's, Windows 8.1 back to Windows 2000. There are no server 2003 SKU's available.

Any help pointing me in the right direction on how to get these updated would be greatly appreciated.

For XP, they have been available on the Windows Update site as optional updates.  You might try that on the Windows 2003 server.  Open IE and go to Tools and select Windows Update.  When you get there, select 'Custom' and see if it brings them up after the scan.
