How to manualy update SMS 2003 Software Updates list of patches:
Well SMS sometimes does not update (as it should) the list of the most current avaible patches in Microsoft site.
So here is a way around on how to manualy or also by a script, how to update:
The tasks we must acomplish are:

    1. Download the WSUSSCN2.CAB file from
    2. Copy this file BBBo the PackageSrc folder on the Site Server owning the Microsoft Update Tool package.
    3. Within the SMS Console, update the distribution poBBBs for the Microsoft Update Tool package

Run the command at the command prompt and press ENTER:
Syncxml.exe /s /unattend /site SiteServer /code SiteCode /package PackageID /target PackageSourceFolder
Where SiteServer is the name of the Site Server, SiteCode is the Site Code of the Site Server which owns the Windows
Update Tool package,
PackageID is the SMS-defined numeric ID for your Update Tool package
PackageSourceFolder is the path to the Update Tool source files. (By default this path is C:Program FilesMicrosoft Updates Inventory ToolPkgSource and it is shared as PackageSrc so the path would be [SiteServerName]PackageSrc)
Execute the following batch file or schedulle it to run every week:

cd "C:Program FilesMicrosoft Updates Inventory ToolPkgSource"
syncxml.exe /s /unattend /site BBBBRVL14 /code BBB /package BBB000D4 /target BBBBRVL14packageSrc
::@echo Archivo de Log aqui: C:SMS_CCMLogsWUSSyncXML.log
::@echo WSUSSCN2.CAB aqui: BBBBRVL14packageSrc
ScanWrapper.exe /Extended /cache

To confirm everything went ok, open SMS (System Manager Server MMC plugin) and go to Software Updates, check if
the latest updates are present if not go to “Packages>Microsoft Updates Tool”>Update Distribution Points
then confirm all is OK at, System Status>Package Status>Microsoft Updates Tool, here look for Nessage ID: 10023
Description: “Content download for the package “BBB000D4” – “24” has started.”
And MessageId:10024
Description “Content download for the package “BBB000D4” – “24” has completed successfully.”
Also look BBBo the C:SMS_CCMLogsWUSSyncXML.log check for any fails or errors usually it
should look like these:
