    Hi all,

    In chapter 9 (Maintaining the OS), the book says that we need to know SUS which is on the CD accompanying the book; whereas WSUS is shown in the chapter.

    What should we learn for the exam? Also, there are 2 versions of WSUS on MS website. Which should we learn, WSUS 2 or 3?

    Thanks

    Glen

    It's WSUS v3 that you need to study as I had about two questions on this on the exam which I sat not too long ago.

    To be honest you can get more than enough info on the subject from microsoft's web site. Best wishes:)

    The best advice is to make sure you are familiar with all versions. You could even get a question to do with upgrading SUS to WSUS etc..

    Thanks for the advice!

    How can the exam expect 3 different versions of SUS/WSUS (2, 3, 3SP1)? Will it not be confusing to memorize what feature 1 has & what the other does'nt? Moreover SUS is not available for download as it has been removed from the supported products.

    Does anyone have an accurate reply?

    Thanks again...

    Glen
