  • Here is a good place to start to see what has been added to WSUS

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=894199&SD=tech

    Silver light deployment info http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974331

    If a computer has an earlier version of Microsoft Silverlight installed, this update will be offered as "Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB 974331)."

    If a computer does not have Silverlight installed, this update will be offered by the latest Silverlight 3.0 installer as "Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB 974331)."

    Silverlight 3.0 contains an auto-updating mechanism. By default, this mechanism is turned off in the WSUS package. Future updates will be provided through WSUS updates

  • Unfortunately, ConfigMgr is at the mercy of WSUS and the WSUS catalog for all update content. I have no idea who decides what content is included in the catalog though -- that's probably a better question for a WSUS forum.

    You could use SCUP to package up the latest version yourself and deploy it using Software Updates.

  • This really should be a seperate thread but anyway..

    Make sure you are Syncing it.  Under the Component Configuration/Software update Point component, open the Products tab.  Near the bottom is Silverlight.  Make sure this is checked first.

    Per the Silverlight Deployment guide

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/8/d/78da8ec9-8801-42e5-89e5-3809386f1316/Silverlight%20Deployment%20Guide.doc

    "·         WSUS is utilized by SCCM only to synchronize the catalog of updates available from Microsoft Update. SCCM does not utilize WSUS to download or deploy the updates; therefore you will need to choose to download the Silverlight updates listed when you create a package.

    ·         Ensure to enable Silverlight being updated in the WSUS Catalog by going to the following location in the SCCM console: Site Management - <site name> - Site Settings – Component configuration – Software Update Point Component properties and on the products tab checking Silverlight. 

    ·         The updates are visible in the SCCM console: navigate to Computer Management - Software Updates – Update Repository – Feature Packs AND Update Rollups – Silverlight.  Feature packs would be used for the installation of Silverlight on clients who do not have Silverlight installed at all and Update rollups will upgrade existing versions of Silverlight."

  • I have never done an install via the Software Update Point.  It might only contain the updates and not the full installer.  Review the Silverlight Guide I gave you and see what they say.  There is a section on there about SCCM deployment.

  • You need to modify Group Policy to not point to a given Wsus server.  From there SCCM should take over.  You can have the Windows Updates set to download or any setting, just as long as the service is still running.  Then SCCM will pull down policy and change the WSUS to the SCCM server settings.
