Q&A from April 2011 Security Bulletin Webcast


Today we published the April Security Bulletin Webcast Questions & Answers page. We fielded 14 questions on various topics during the webcast, including bulletins released, deployment tools, and update detection tools. There were two questions during the webcast that we were unable to answer and we have included those questions and answers on the QA page.

I also want to provide some clarity regarding our announcement that SMS 2003 with SUIT is retiring this month. SMS 2.0 and the SUIT add-on that can be installed on either SMS 2.0 or SMS 2003 are going out of support this month. SMS 2003 is not scheduled to go out of support until 2015. Customers who currently use SMS 2003 with SUIT should plan to use SCCM 2007 or SMS 2003 with ITMU starting next month. 

We invite our customers to join us for the next public webcast on Wednesday, May 11th at 11am PDT (-8 UTC), when we will go into detail about the April bulletin release and answer questions live on the air.
