RE: Update Catalog Seach Syntax ??
Yo, Microsoft, you listening?
This is the exact question I came here looking for an answer for. I can't
use WSUS, and I don't feel like dissecting one of my unclass systems to
catalog all of the post-SP2 fixes I need to download.
With all the technology at your disposal, it shouldn't be hard to set up a
customized search to find the items like we are trying to do. If you need
help, just ask - I could do it for you, but I charge a pretty hefty fee.
