End of support for Win 2000 - Wegfall des W2k-Supports

End of support for Win 2000 - Wegfall des W2k-Supports

Postby asdf.wou » 08.11.2010, 17:31

WSUS Offline home page says version 6.6.4 is the last being able to download Win 2000 updates. I don't understand it clearly:

what I want to know is: in there any confirmed date in which Win 2000 updates won't be ever downloadable, or does it simply mean that Microsoft won't release new updates?

In other words, if I want to have all Win 2000 updates stored on a DVD, must I download all them NOW?

Sorry for my bad english and thanks before your replay.

Hello,

i believe that nobody can tell you, how long the patches will stay on the MS homepage and server.
I believe, they will be available for some years as i've updated a Win 98 machine some weeks ago.

MS says that self-support for products out of lifecycle will continue for at least a year.

Then it'stime to backup a recent wsusscn2.cab with W2k support if a future version of sometime year will be released without containing W2k updates.

Oh! How interesting! How have you done to download Winthem? Is there any way to download Win 95/98/ME updates nowadays?

Ah, sorry, what a shame, And is there any old version of WSUS that allows you to download oldest systems updates?

No. OS older than Win2k don't work with WSUS. Some time ago you could build a 9x/ME/NT update repository using the Windows catalog, but no more (now redirects to Marketplace).

Support for win2000 has been completely removed in the new version, please use the old version 665 for updating W2k-machines.

It is possible that M$ will remove W2k from the update database file wsusscn2.cab we use for dynamically determination of the update files. You may want to backup a current version still with W2k support for future use.

Was bedeutet der Wegfall des W2k-Supports

Postby rolfie » 14.12.2010, 21:32

Ok, MS liefert für W2k keine Updates mehr aus. Thorsten hat angekündigt das ab V6.7 auch der W2k-Support entfällt.

Was bedeutet das für meine seit mindestens V4.0 gepflegte Sammlung von W2k-Updates? Werden die beim nächsten Aufruf bereinigt und gelöscht? Ich habe mir bisher nie ISO's gebrannt. War nicht nötig, das Offline-Update liegt auf meinem Fileserver und ist für alle PC's erreichbar. Und ich will meine W2k-PC's nicht auf XP upgraden.

Wie sichere ich die gesammelten Updates am besten? Per ISO? Oder kann ich die irgendwie geschickt auslagern? Ich bitte um Vorschläge.
