Upgrading WSUS Server

    Question

  • I want to get my WSUS environment ready for Windows 2012 so I was reading this article about the update.  Perhaps I'm an idiot but after reading this section on applying the update:

    1. Start the process with WSUS 3.0 SP2 that synchronizes with Microsoft Update.
    2. Apply this update.
    3. Start a synchronization.
    4. Wait for the synchronization to succeed.
    5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each WSUS 3.0 SP2 server that synchronizes to the server that you just updated.

    I was not able to find where this update is listed.  According to the article, I should be looking for KB2734608 but a search for that in my WSUS server turns up nothing.  Do I not have something selected properly in the options, perhaps under the Products and Classifications?

    You were already in the article; the download links are IN the article.

    The update is NOT available via WSUS, WU, MU, or any other automated means. The only way to install this update is to download it and run the installer and then perform those post-installation steps as you read.
