Extending Windows Home Server with WSUS

A while ago now, Kevin Royalty wrote an article on how to use the Windows Software Update Services (WSUS) using your Windows Home Server. What this meant is that you could use WSUS to download any Microsoft updates and have your computers get the updates from the WSUS instead of each one having to go out to the Internet for updates. This also meant that you could control what updates are installed.

Kevin has since updated the article to include an automated way of performing maintenance. So, here it is – thanks Kevin!
