Following up on Joseph’s post last week, some first-time customers of Windows Server Update Services have asked something to the effect of “why can’t I see patches for Office and SQL Server?” Be assured, they’re there as this screen capture shows.

After you install WSUS and you check the categories of updates available, you will only see Windows (XP, Win2k, WS03, etc.) listed. Only after performing this first sync will you see other product categories — Office, SQL and Exchange currently and more to come.
