 As promised more than a month ago, Microsoft Corp. yesterday began pushing Internet Explorer 8 to enterprises via Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

The IE8 upgrade for Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003 and Server 2008 was cast as an "Update rollup" to WSUS, Microsoft's most popular tool for deploying patches within businesses.

Microsoft noted that even if administrators had set WSUS to auto-approve rollup packages, the new browser won't automatically be sent to client PCs that connect to the update server. "Even if Auto-Approve for the 'Update Rollup' category is on, Internet Explorer 8 will not automatically be deployed," said Eric Hebenstreit, a lead program manager on the IE team, in a post to the IE blog. "You must approve the Internet Explorer 8 EULA before Internet Explorer 8 is deployed to your downstream clients."

Hebenstreit included a pair of screenshots in the blog post to illustrate what administrators would see in the WSUS console.

All supported languages of IE8 for Vista, Server 2003 and Server 2008 were pushed to WSUS yesterday, but just 24 were fed to administrators for Windows XP. The remaining 34 will hit update servers on Sept. 22.
