Hold on ... SUS isn't dead yet, was If you aren't WSUSing maybe you'd better
From Bink today comes the word that SUS 1.0 is going to be turned off soon, so if you are running SUS... this US Holiday weekend is probably a good time to start testing out WSUS. Step by step instructions on migrating from SUS to WSUS are here and given that we never READ [including myself] use this weekend to start reading.
And bookmark this KB article to keep you alerted as to what comes down on WSUS/AU, etc.
In fact, patching will be the topic I discuss at the SMB Technology Network. To be specific WSUS, Shavlik and Patching in general.
Then in September at SMB nation it will be on Security and Hardening with Dana.
Hope to see you in both places!
Update --- okay I should have read more than the headline...
