In the spirit of NOT repeating everything word for word that people have already laid down, I can point you to some very well written articles explaining the basics of Windows Update for Business. That being said, before you dive in, here’s my pre-2 cents / summary of Windows Update for Business (WUB): Windows Update for Business is not (yet another) cloud service.

The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.

It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
