  3. digitaldd says:

    Not seeing 928388 on my SUS server at all is there some special place I should look?

  4. I have not seen the KB for use by Windows Software Update Services (WSUS) yet.  When will it be available??

    The February 13th update for the global time zone update for Windows will include the North American DST2007 changes as well as all other global changes included in KB 931836, the change for Western Australia KB929120, and several additional changes that have occurred since KB928388 was originally released, such as adding Newfoundland, Canada, to the DST2007 North American rules.  This will go out shortly and be available on WSUS – see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931836 for details.

    Because KB 931836 is an Update Rollup, it will also be available for scanning and deployment using ITMU, the Microsoft Update for IT used by SMS.  Customers who have previously deployed KB928388 and who are not in the newly updated time zone areas do not need to deploy this prior to March 12, but should ultimately roll this update into their environments to ensure complete and accurate time zone databases on all servers and PCs.

    it was made available on Feb 13. You have to have Updates and/or Rollout Updates enabled in the options panel, under which types of updates to receive.
