June 2002 seems like a very long time ago for an "up to date" auto- update 
client.

Microsoft update is based on the actual version of the Auto update client on 
the workstation.

Unless you are running the WSUS server and configure the server to auto update 
the client to the latest version- you will need to manually update the client 
or create and deploy a package to update the client.

After the client workstation has the latest AU client- it will download and 
install MS updates as well as Windows updates- based on the configuration of 
the autoupdate/windows update settings on the machine- whether it is set 
manually or applied through GPOs.

I checked some of the archives and I can't see where we have discussed this 
before on this list, but I would imagine it had to come up.

Is there a way to enable Microsoft updates with Group Policy.   I know you can 
set policies for Automatic updates, but this is different that Microsoft 
Updates.

Any ideas?


Booker
