Install WSUS 3.0 SP2 on Windows Server 2012 Essentials

In wS2012e you cannot install WSUS because the “Windows Server Update Services” role is missing in Server Manager.

But now a hotfix has been made available which brings the WSUS role back to Windows Server 2012 Essentials and "The Windows Server Essentials and Small Business Server Blog" have a great article/tutorial on how to get this set up, which takes you through the necessary steps.

Add WSUS to WS2012e

The hotfix can be downloaded from here, whilst the tutorial can be found here.
