Hi there,

I am trying to download Microsoft WSUS 2.0 from here:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/wsus/bb466206.aspx

However, I get an error message when attempting to download. It looks like
it is no longer available on Microsoft's site. I really don't want to go to
3.0 right now, are there alternative locations to download the setup package?

Thanks!

Why ever would you be doing that?

Yeah.. not for about two years now!

And *exactly* why would this be? WSUS 2 is no longer a supported product.
The only version of WSUS available for installation is WSUS3SP1.

No.

Colin, I have WSUS 2.0 for you. WSUS 3.0 is a slow, clunky piece o
crap. I don't blame you for wanting 2.0. It works so much better. Th
file is about 160 MB and includes everything you need. How do you wan
me to send it to you

fyi

Q. When does support end for WSUS 2.0?
A. Support for WSUS 2.0 has already ended. WSUS 2.0 SP1 support will end
April 2009 (two years after WSUS 3.0 was released).

Q. After support ended for Software Update Services (SUS), no new updates
were available for SUS servers. Will the same be true for WSUS 3.0 and WSUS
2.0?
A. We plan to make most new updates, including the latest version of WSUS
itself, available to older versions of WSUS. The exception will be updates
that require features only present in the newer version of the WSUS server.
