  • hi thanks for the reply . I want to update microsoft security patches for windows 2000 server . For any reason there are lot of patches are pending in servers.

    Since there are no patches newer than July, 2010, my suggestion would be to install whatever is already downloaded, browse to Windows Update and get whatever else might be there, and be done with it. Consider those machines full patched forever!

    There is no value in exerting effort trying to find a patch management solution for Windows 2000 because there are NO PATCHES that are going to be available to deploy from that solution.

    Inasmuch as Microsoft has not released a Security Update for Windows 2000 since July, 2010 -- two years ago -- my first question would be about what updates you need to install to those machines that weren't already installed two years ago?

    That will determine what options you do or don't have for installing whatever it is you're trying to deploy.

    My second question would be -- You're posting in the WSUS forum... have ya tried using WSUS?
