Windows Server Update Services communities
Microsoft communities are great places to exchange ideas with other users and discuss common issues. You can read and write messages by using an NNTP-based newsreader such as Microsoft Outlook Express. You can also use the Web-based newsreader provided by Microsoft to access all of the newsgroups. To access the WSUS Communities, go to Windows Server Update Services Communities Homepage (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=45215)
For step-by-step guidance for getting started, including installing WSUS, setting up a client computer, and deploying your first set of updates, see Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Started with Microsoft Windows Server Update Services 3.0(http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=41774).
For information about planning for, installing, and then configuring WSUS components and infrastructure, see Deploying Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=79983).
For information that helps you automate tasks or customize WSUS, see the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services Software Developer's Kit (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=43099) and Windows Update Agent Software Developer's Kit (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=43101). Note that the Windows Update Agent is the Automatic Updates service. Both SDKs contain information about the application programming interface (API), as well as sample scripts and ready-to-use tools for your WSUS deployment and implementation.
