Having read a bit about ML Server, I purchased ML Server, updated my backed up SL Server by installing ML client and then running the server software and everything just reconfigured like magic - absolutely painless. Kudos Apple! I actually use Software update enabler but I would guess the fix is the same for this app. If your SL server is eligible then update.

Like Software Update Enabler, Mountain Lion has killed it - probably because the apple software update now points to the app store. Hopefully someone more intelligent than I will come up with a fix.

SSUS 2.0 Does not work. I tried on MacPro w/ Snow Leopard and Macbook Pro w/ Snow Leopard connecting to Macmini Leopard Server and it does not work on either system. I get networking errors. I even tried on the server with the loopback address and that does not work either. I restored back to SSUS 1.0.1 and it is working on all three systems. SSUS 1.0.1 even works on Snow Leopard even though it doesn't support it. Maybe its just me but 2.0 does not work.

It works fine. I use it on our master disk images, and all other computers in our network that have not yet been configured to use our SUS. It's never failed once.

Finally a GUI application to set which the Apple software update server!
Before I had to use the Unix console to type commands (that I never seem to remember) to accomplish the same thing. This very small application (91k) shows a dialog where you can set the IP address and port number (typically 8088) of the server that hosts the software update service. If you change your mind later and want to reset to the default Apple update server, just start the application again and click “Reset Software Update Prefs” to tell your machine to look for updates on Apples server.
If you manage any number of OSX 10.4 equipment and a 10.4 server I strongly recommend you to set up software update services on your server, and have all your computers update from your server instead of Apples. You get better control and reduce bandwidth on your Internet connection.
This application makes it a breeze to set client computers SU preference.
Don't forget to make a donation, I certainly did as I really found it useful!

I like the fact that this particular utility allows you to change the defaults back.
