I would like to get the view as if anybody used Windows Server Update Service - WSUS for SQL Server Service Pack and Hotfix distribution on the client network.

I believe WSUS support SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 for Service Pack and Hotfix distribution.

I have not used WSUS before. So I would like to get clarified on;

1. Is thre any prerequisite on using WSUS for deploying SQL Server 2000, 2005 & 2008 Service pack and hotfixes?

2. Is there any known issues withit?

3. What is the successful rate on using WSUS for deploying SQL Server 2000, 2005 & 2008 Service pack and hotfixes?

4. How about if there are multiple SQL Server instances on a server?

5, What are the input / planning required to use WSUS? like SQL Server Instance name, Server Name, Server Administrator accout..,

6. Merits & Demerit of uisng WSUS for deploying SQL Server 2000, 2005 & 2008 Service pack and hotfixes over manually doing this?

7. How to verify if the WSUS deployment is successful?
