  4. The Security event log on the client computer

  5. The System event log on the client computer

  6. The Application event log on the client computer

  7. The IIS usage log

b, e, and g. the sus server will add relevant events to the system event log on the sus server. the automatic updates client adds events to the client s system event log. details about individual requests to the sus server from the automatic updates client are contained in the iis usage log.

1. 

What method will you implement to deploy updates?

  1. Provide detailed instructions to end users on how to download and install updates from the Microsoft Web site as they become available.

  2. Configure the Automatic Updates client to download and install updates from Windows Update when they become available.

  3. Deploy an SUS server at each location, and configure the Automatic Updates client to download and install updates from the local SUS server.

  4. Deploy updates using the Software Installation functionality built into GPOs.

c. for this environment, sus is the best way to deploy updates.

2. 

How will you configure the Automatic Updates client?

  1. Provide detailed instructions to end users, instructing them to right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Automatic Updates tab, and then specify the configuration settings.

  2. Provide detailed instructions to end users, instructing them to use the registry editor to modify the registry values to configure the Automatic Updates client.

  3. Use GPOs to deploy a .reg file containing registry values to configure the Automatic Updates client.

  4. Use GPOs to configure the Windows Update administrative template to configure the Automatic Updates client.

d. in an active directory environment, gpos are the most efficient way to configure the automatic updates client.

3. 

How will you ensure that newly installed computers are updated?

you should create an integrated installation of all operating systems that are currently being deployed to new computers. for each operating system, include security updates, critical updates, and any important updates provided by your original equipment manufacturer (oem) or required by non-microsoft applications. if possible, assign an administrator to regularly update the integrated installation with newly released updates. if various people within your organization will be deploying new computers, do your best to educate them about the importance of installing computers with the integrated installation. to further reduce the risk of new computers being infected, use mbsa and mbsacli to scan every ip address in your organization for new computers.

4. 

How will you determine whether clients are being successfully updated?

  1. Provide detailed instructions to end users, instructing them to use Add/ Remove Programs to identify updates that have been installed and compare that list against the list of available updates on Windows Update.

  2. Visit random computers, and view the version numbers of system files to verify that updates have been applied.

  3. Use the graphical MBSA console to scan when you have free time available. Configure MBSA to check only the updates that have been approved on SUS servers.

  4. Schedule the command-line MBSACLI utility to scan all of Wide World Importers subnets once per week, and examine the reports the following morning. Use the /sus command-line parameter to force MBSACLI to check only those updates approved on your SUS servers.

d. of these options, the best choice is to schedule the mbsacli utility. this reduces the burden on you and on end users. it is a less than perfect plan, however, because computers not accessible on the network when the scan runs will not be detected.

1. 

What is the source of the problem?

the problem is that the client computer does not have sufficient permissions to request updates from the sus server. iis usage logs can be difficult to interpret, but this is an important part of troubleshooting problems related to sus. the sc-status field contains the hypertext transfer protocol (http) status code that iis returned to the client. if the request could be successfully filled, the status code would be 200. however, in all of the requests shown in this scenario, the response code is 401. the http status code 401 indicates that the client is unauthorized for the type of request. for more information about http status codes, refer to rfc 2616.

2. 

How would you troubleshoot the problem?

you should use iis manager to check the permissions for the web site and the virtual directories used by sus. additionally, you should check the file permissions on the web site root. the root of the web site, and all sus content, should be configured to allow anonymous requests.
