Managing Microsoft Software Updates


Microsoft System Center 2012 - Configuration Manager provides great capabilities for managing software updates, including new features, such as automatic deployment rules. In this lab, implement software update management in a Configuration Manager 2012 environment. Install a software update point, synchronize updates, scan clients for update compliance, create software update groups and deployments, as well as implement the new automatic deployment rule feature to help simplify the downloading, approving, and deploying of software updates in Configuration Manager.

The Discussion

    My enterprise currently uses WSUS and I already sent and received a reply from the WSUS blog guys (maybe one of you?) that there will be nothing at TechEd on WSUS.  Is there a session that might discuss how Microsoft does updates in general?  Not so much about the deployment tools such as System Center but how MS categorizes them, tests them, who to contact if you have a patch issue, etc.  Thank you.
