    Is it safe to assume that customers with Windows 2008 R2 Extended Support agreements will continue to receive the CA rollup data for such packages when we enter extended support date periods?

    Do we have to do anything different to get the CA metadata notifications after April 2020 and accept them into our systems?

    Thanks in advance.
    Bob.

    Hi Bob,

     

    Extended security updates are usually not available for free and are only for Microsoft Customers that are paying for extended support, so we avoid adding them into our content.

     

    Rgds,

    Steve.

    OK so, no way to register our extended support and have specific registered service to get these via CA ITCM content?
    If so then I guess that means we're back to WSUS or SCCM to achieve our goals.  That will go down like a lead balloon with our customer.
