WSUS v3 Build Versions List

The WSUS Console gives us a build version:


  • WSUS Server version: 3.2.7600.226

Thus, we needed a quick reference to make sure we have WSUS v3 Service Pack 2 installed for Windows 7 update compatibility.

There does not seem to be one location in English for the build list that we can find.

However, we did find this:


TechNet does have a detection routine to run on the WSUS server itself:

However, the routine does not give us a quick reference point for version and service pack level that the WSUS.DE site does.

Do you recommend now for SP2 to be installed on SBS08? I know in the past you havent and I did a system last month that caused all sorts of issues after SP2 installed.

We still avoid Windows SharePoint Services SP2 (WSS) on SBS 2008 due to the complications that happen when it gets installed.

Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) SP2 is safe. Just don't let the configuration wizard run after the fact.
