WSUS vs. WGA notification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are using Windows Server Update Services and the appropriate GPO to distribute updates.  The updates work fine and the machines seem to be updated on a regular scheduled interval.  However; It appears that updates shown on WSUS as being installed on PC's re-appear as needed when a manual update is performed with IE and WGA is installed. 

    Is WGA going to be distributed through WSUS?  If it were these problems would be reduced.

  • Hello Joe,

      It is very unlikely.  WGA is not a recommeneded update for Enterprise environments so will most likely never be distributed thru WSUS.

      As for the re-appearing update issue, I have no experience with WSUS.  I recommend the Windows Server Update Services TechNet page http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/wsus/default.aspx as possible assistance for the problem.


    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
