non-security updates?

Postby thierryb » 18.08.2011, 16:51

I see that wsusoffline is using the wsusscn2.cab catalog file for the updates. But this one doesn't contain some of the updates the client machines usually see. Is there a way to create and see the packages for all the updates?

Using COM, I made a little program and my Windows 7 machine is currently reporting:
NEED update "Windows Internet Explorer 9 Language Pack for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems" "abfd00b1-b456-449f-aa58-b28349972db3" , categories: ("Updates", "Windows 7") ()
NEED update "Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB2533523)" "23a8a130-d350-4d63-943c-3aa6e9a0e52f" , categories: ("Updates", "Windows 7") ()
NEED update "Definition Update for Microsoft Security Essentials - KB2310138 (Definition 1.111.159.0)" "7cb0731e-e632-45c9-b5aa-0c2fee73d593" , categories: ("Definition Updates", "MS Security Essentials") ()

But none of those are listed in wsusscn2.cab.

Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

This catalog file contains at least the updates classified as "critical" and "security relevant", but it does not necessarily contain all "important" and "optional" ones.

Thanks for the reply. I basically wanted to know if someone had an idea on how to get really all the updates.

If you want you can add Updates to download (.\static\StaticDownloadLinks-%OS%-%ARCH%-%LANG%.txt) and installation (.\client\static\StaticUpdataIds-%OS-%ARCH%.txt)list.

%OS% => Windows XP (wxp), Vista (w60), Seven (w61), Office 2003 (o2k3), 2007 (o2k7) and 2010 (o2k10)
%ARCH% => 32bit (x86), 64bit (x64)
%lang% => English (enu), German (deu), Global (glb) ...

I am interested in this as well. I understand you can add these files to the static and client directories, but how do you go about generating them? Thanks

Hi.

From ...\doc\faq-enu.txt (http://trac.wsusoffline.net/browser/tru ... aq-enu.txt):
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can I download/install additional patches?
A: Yes, you can adjust how the download and update scripts behave by excluding or adding patches from download or installation. For adding updates proceed as follows:

1. Adding updates to download routines

For adding an update to be downloaded, insert its download URL into the matching "StaticDownloadLinks-<platform>[-architecture>]-<language>.txt file, found in the ".\static" directory.

2. Adding updates to installation routines

Add an update to installation by inserting its knowledge base ID (KBxxxxxx or simply xxxxxx) into the matching "StaticUpdateIds-<platform>[-<architecture>].txt file (directory ".\client\static"). This update will then be installed every time, even if it was already installed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What do you meen with
generating
?
Downloading or Installing?
The Program will download the file and put it in the right folder.
The installer will search for static defined updates and search for them (.\client\<OS>\<lang>; .\client\<OS>\glb; .\client\win\<lang>; .\client\win\glb).

By generating I meant generating the list of .txt files which contain links to the windows updates. I take it the supported ones are generated via wsusscn2.cab, but how would you generate the .txt files for non security/important updates?

Thanks

Wou would have to do it manually, there is no usable catalog for that.
Microsoft update catalog: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/
Windows Install media download: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15088/windows-create-installation-media

WSUSOU generates all IDs which are not superseded from wsusscn2.cab and adds links from .\static\DownloadLinks-<OS>-<ARCH>-<LANG>.txt
