Hi Experts,

Is there a software tool or website to check in which I can enter a Microsoft KB number to see if a Microsoft KB update / hotfix has been superseded by another newer update and to show the new KB number for the update which supersedes it?. Mainly in specific for Windows Server 2008 R2 updates.

Thanks

1) WSUS shows that a update is superseded
2) First you need to find the Microsoft Security Bulletin.
3) When you know the Security Bulletin google that and find the Technet website
4) Now search your KB and you will see this information

WSUS is the most common free tool that give the supersedence information for each update.

Yo must enable the column named Supersendence on the WSUS console, by doing a rigth-click over the column headers.

Supersedence on WSUS console.
You can see also the MSRC Numbers column, representing the Microsoft Bulletin Number for each update. However these numbers are not present in all updates, so IMHO the most reliable source for supercedence is the WSUS console it self.

Thanks for the clarification. We dont have WSUS but have Microsoft SSCM 2012 R2 SP1 so I searched for KB: KB2847311 and I found the bulletin ID column (which showed MS13-081) and searched in google for this number. Under Windows Server 2008 R2 there seems to be multiple numbers in the updates replaced column but i looked for the line that said KB2847311 and in the updates replaced column it says 2830290 / MS13-046 so I guess this is the new replacement KB number a new security bulletin number?
