    Hello Uranus Perú

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A and thank you for posting your questions here.

    Your question is to know how you would distribute .NET 8 through WSUS. To distribute .NET 8 through WSUS (Windows Server Update Services), follow these steps:

    1. Install the WSUS Server Role: Ensure that you have a WSUS server set up. If not, install the WSUS role on a Windows Server machine. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this in the Microsoft Learn documentation.
    2. Configure WSUS: Set up your WSUS server by configuring synchronization settings, specifying products and classifications, and approving updates. Make sure to include .NET Framework updates in the list of approved updates.
    3. Approve and Deploy Updates in WSUS: Once the WSUS server is configured, approve the specific .NET 8 update (such as KB4054590) for deployment. Ensure that the update is targeted to the appropriate group of computers.
    4. Group Policy Settings for Automatic Updates: Configure Group Policy settings on client machines to ensure they check for updates from the WSUS server. This will allow the clients to fetch and install the approved .NET 8 update.

    Remember that WSUS is based on the local Windows Update client, and it won’t force machines to install updates if the PCs don’t think they need them. If the clients aren’t fetching the update, consider alternative methods like manual installation or using deployment tools like PDQ Deploy.

    Additionally, for server operating systems, updates for supported versions of .NET Core 3.1, .NET 5.0, and .NET 6.0 are available via WSUS and Microsoft Update Catalog.

    I hope this is helpful! Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions.
