I see a lot of servers that don’t have update rollup 3 installed.  What’s that you ask?  It’s the SBS specific update rollup that ensures you can attach Windows 7 machines to your network.

Description of Windows Small Business Server 2008 Update Rollup 3:

The good news it fixes a lot of things.

The bad news is that I see a lot of servers that don’t have that installed. 

Way one is to flip your server over to Microsoft update.

Way two is to go into the patching section of the Console and look for KB969121 and approve it.

Let me show you way three.

First go to the Microsoft update catalog — http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

In the search box in the corner, enter 969121

You may be prompted for an ActiveX control.  Approve it.

Now see that KB969121 that showed up?

Click add

Now click on the basket icon at the top

Now you’ll get a download icon

Find a place to stick the update and click continue

And the download will occur

Now that patch is in your location to be put on a usb flash drive and taken from computer to computer.
