Rights Management Services Client with Service Pack 2 (KB917275) via WSUS

On Tuesday, November 28, 2006, Rights Management Services Client with Service Pack 2 (KB917275) was downloaded by WSUS Server as classified under Service Packs.


According to Brian Lich [MSFT], “The RMS client should be not offered via WSUS because it is not considered a critical update.  We are investigating this.”


The RMS client is offered on Windows Update and Microsoft Update to Windows 2000 and Windows XP computer as an Optional/Recommended update.  It’s also available on the Microsoft Download Center.


I have approved this update for INSTALL and so far I haven’t seen any issue. Happy patching!

  1. Yah I noticed it too, not sure what to recommend to the business yet. Might deny it for now, its not needed for anything we are running yet. Then again it couldn’t hurt… or could it? ;)

  2. Yes, we tried it also for a test group. There did not to seem to be any problems but I am foregoing to not roll it out to the production workstations.
