After upgrading to Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 (WSUS 3.0 SP2) on Windows Small Business Server 2008, the Configuration Wizard defaults to the operating system language in the Choose Languages dialog instead of the language or languages previously selected by the WSUS administrator. This might lead the WSUS languages being reset to the default selection.

On non-English versions of Windows Small Business Server 2008, English language updates will be skipped if the default operating system language is selected in the Configuration Wizard.


If changes to the configuration are needed, review the language selections to ensure that the language needs of all deployed clients and downstream servers are satisfied.

If no changes to configuration are needed, cancel out from the configuration dialog.


If you limit updates by language on an upstream server, make sure you select all the languages that will be needed by clients of the downstream servers. You cannot synchronize updates on a downstream server for languages that were not selected on the upstream server.

You must be a member of the WSUS Administrators group on the WSUS server to perform this procedure.
