CAM WSUS reguirement severity levels and Microsoft Update levels.

Hi,

Could someone explain me how correlates severity level in WSUS requirement configuration on CAM (Critical, Medium, All) and MS Update levels for Windows 7 (Important, Recommended, Optional)?

Thanks

Dmitry

Maybe not asking this in the wireless area would be a good idea.

My best reply though :

Custom—Use this setting and the associated dropdown menu to install updates based on their severity by choosing Critical, Medium, or All from the associated dropdown menu.

Critical—Installs only "Critical" Microsoft Windows updates.

Medium—Installs all "Critical, Important, and Moderate" Windows updates.

All—Installs all "Critical, Important, Moderate, and Low" Windows updates.

Nicolas,

thanks for your help. I have seen this document.

Problem is that MS Windows 7 have not Critical update level. It has Important, Recommended and Optional.

If I set Critical on CAS what should install WSUS agent on the client?

Re: CAM WSUS reguirement severity levels and Microsoft Update le

Ok, I understand now.

Maybe a dumb question from my side : those levels ... you say they are on the win7 client, but the WSUS is still the same regardless of the client right ? So what are the severity level on your WSUS ? Is it win2003 or win2008 ?

OK. I found it now.

It is severity rating  in Microsoft. It could be Critical, Important, Optional.

Thanks.
