    Where can I find the list of approved/supported Windows Security Updates now? The website seems to have changed (again).
    It used to be http://www.virtuozzo.com/products/virtuozzo/updates/, as shown in the Additional Info section of https://kb.virtuozzo.com/985.
    The only thing I could find is KB3140410 being supported after installing this months VZU460103: https://kb.virtuozzo.com/en/128541. But typically there are other KB's that don't need these VZU's and can be safely installed. The whole list used to be in before mentioned URL.

    Hello Nico,

    It's been gone for a while now, and, unfortunately, due to high load on web-team during the company split we had no chance to work on this service.
    We do understand importance of this service, we'll work with the web-team to restore this functionality (to be more precise - it needs to be updated to display supported updates for W2k12 as well).
    Thanks for a reminder, we'll get things in motion.

    Hello Nico,

    Almost forgot.
    Although there is no webpage for supported updates, you can always get the list manually from the WSUS.
    Following article explains how to do this: https://kb.virtuozzo.com/en/124192

    Hope it helps while corresponding web service is missing.

    Any word on the web page? Neither I nor my coworker can get that Powershell script to do anything productive on a Windows server

    My bad, I had to scroll way down to get to the 'green-lit' updates.

    still, there's quite some room for improvement. There's a whole bunch 'Expected by' weeks, months or even years in the past. C'mon...

    It is my understanding that because Parallels/Odin needs Microsoft's support to continue to offer the Containers product, it will cease to exist at some point soon. Microsoft is not releasing the source code necessary to engineer this product for Server 2012 R2. So I think we're all operating on borrowed time here. That is why I think you see limited support for this feature. If the product is basically 'end of life' then they aren't going to spend effort on something like this

    The "webpage with updates" status has nothing to do with the product's future. Our webteam has their hands full since the companies split and it's quite difficult to make it a priority task. I'll "ping" the responsible person though. Thanks for reminder.

    P.S. besides the one-page frontend this feature also has a serious back-end, it takes effort to move it to a newer platform, as far as I was informed - we're working on this one, actively.
