    IE8 & WSUS

    I just wondered if anyone had any updated dates for release of internet explorer 8 on WSUS yet?
    I have been looking for ages and a while ago people said end of july but nothing has appeared yet.

    Cheers

    Not quite the same subject but might be of interest: I installed IE8 on my WSUS server and it broke WSUS Couldn't fix it so I moved it to another (IE7) server.

    Maybe avoid IE8, certainly on your servers...

    Yeh was thinking it would be an idea, we dont even have IE7 on servers yet since there is really no need (no browsing is done on server)

    I've had IE8 installed on Server 2003 for quite some time now. Some with WSUS 3.0 and some without, depending on their roles.

    I don't think IE8 itself is on WSUS yet (I haven't checked in a long while), but it would be logical to presume that when IE8 becomes available, its security updates and compatibility updates will become distributable via WSUS.

    They already are available. They have sent that lot on but not IE8 itself. If you install it on a machine manually you can send out IE8 updates.

    I will have to check this as I wasn't aware IE8 updates were available yet.

    IE8 is on our servers. The only niggle was ePolicy Orchestrator needing compatibility mode for some (but not all*) parts of the web interface.

    *as in, one policy will load fine in the editor, but another one (for the same module/av component) won't.

    IE8 was there I thought :S Its a seperate program like IE7 was if you look in the program list you will see IE8 dynamic installer and I thought it came out under than header (I'm avoiding IE8 thus I'm not worried if it isn't but I thought it was )

    The IE8 dynamic installer category is there but the actual installer isn't available to deploy from WSUS yet, security updates are though as i've patched a few test boxes from WSUS.

    IE7 actually came under 'Update Rollups' and I suspect IE8 will too. Not sure what the Dynamic Installer category is for, let alone some of the other MS products I've never heard of!

    I only installed IE8 on our servers as I could not be bothered to install the relevant ADM files myself !! [ Lazy when it comes to that sort of thing ]

    Yes you're right and there isn't much information out there about the dynamic installer but I think it's actually to do with beta testing and isn't used the rest of the time.

    Windows Internet Explorer (7 and 8) Dynamic Installer

    Dynamic Installer categories are for the initial setup of the software/OS.

    Has anyone else had problems rolling this out? WSUS is reporting that it has installed to our XP machines but it hasn't come up.
