Been recently playing around with different options for management of my servers. One of these is WSUS.
Getting a beginning list of updates was simplistic enough (though, the list is a bit...long) but a question of terms comes into play.
MS uses the term Supersede when describing older updates that have been covered by a newer patch/service pack. But does this mean I can just flat out decline all updates that are superseded?
Or is there a pitfall with this attitude going forth due to poor terms or implementation on WSUS' part?
If so, is there a best way to identify when this is a poor idea for updates (declining all updates of Office 2003 and just installing SP3), or is it a matter of manually going through each update (making sure every update is installed preceding SP3)?
