SUS is end of life, upgrade to WSUS
January 1, 2007 2 Comments
Support for SUS v.1.0 ended on 6th December 2006
After this date it is no longer be supported, but more importantly it will no longer be able to download or distribute any new updates.
So, if you are still running “old” SUS you need to make the move to WSUS as soon as possible. While there is no ‘upgrade’ as such, you can migrate all your approvals and updates across.
This article covers the basics:

You might also want to consider the Beta 2 of WSUS 3.0, but since that requires Windows Server 2003 sp1 (and a bunch of other components) you could not migrate directly from
SUS if you have it running on Windows 2000.
