CSM for WSUS integrates into the Customer’s Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) service. The integration is done through the Client Software and the CSM background services. CSM for WSUS configures the WSUS service’s 3rd party Applications (local publishing), deployment approvals, and certain other things, according to the configuration in the Management Portal and in the CSM Integration Client.
As a result, the WSUS service deploys the desired Applications onto the workstations that are members of WSUS and its groups.
The Provider is not responsible for the Customer’s WSUS service’s operation. Instead, it’s the Customer’s responsibility to take care of the service’s operation, any related platform services, and the necessary telecommunication connections to the CSM background services.
The Customer is also responsible for deploying the Client software, and the necessary telecommunication connections to the CSM background services.
