When adding the Software Update point role, there must be some kind of configuration take place. This can be done on the role mentioned and on Site Components. On the Software Update point role a Proxy server can be configured. All other configuration must be done on Site Components. The following classifications are available here:
- Critical Updates: Broadly released fixes for specific problems addressing critical, non-security related bugs.
- Definition Updates: Updates to virus or other definition files.
- Feature Packs: New feature releases, usually rolled into products at the next release.
- Security Updates: Broadly released fixes for specific products, addressing security issues.
- Service Packs: Cumulative sets of all hotfixes, security updates, critical updates, and updates created since the release of the product. Service packs might also contain a limited number of customer-requested design changes or features.
- Tools: Utilities or features that aid in accomplishing a task or set of tasks.
- Update Rollups: Cumulative sets of hotfixes, security updates, critical updates, and updates packaged together for easy deployment. A rollup generally targets a specific area, such as security, or a specific component, such as Internet Information Services (IIS).
- Updates: Broadly released fixes for specific problems addressing non-critical, non-security related bugs.
In ConfigMgr 2007 there was also a Driver classification. That one isn't available anymore in the 2012 release. That's because of the driver catalog in ConfigMgr: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh301101.aspx
Remember: Selecting above items doesn't download anything for you. It will only replicate WSUS catalog data, so you can see if updates are needed or not.
