WDS Role on Server 2012

Can someone please explain to me, we have the WDS role enabled on x 2 SCCM management point (Server 2012)
Are they any updates available per say for this WDS feature that we can download from MS?
How do you determine which version of WDS you currently running vs what is the latest version you can be on?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

WDS has long been a role of windows server, so it isn't a separate download or version. As such, updates to some of its components may be included in generic OS updates that Microsoft does not fully document, by accident or by trade secret. Like most roles (IIS being a notable exception), they aren't independently versioned, but are considered to be the same version as the OS itself. So as long as your OS is patched, so is WDS.

SCCM uses WDS on DPs and not management points.  So you are actually looking at Distribution points.

SCCM roles are different than Windows Roles.
