I just installed WSUS on my box. All seemed to go well with the install and I got no unexpected results. Its up and running on port 8530 on the server.
I followed the instructions that Jeff - TechSoEasy provided me with in an earlier thread and this page does say that the documentation is being updated (whatever that may mean) http://sbsurl.com/wsus
(I followed to the letter, with the exception that I created a partition exclusively for the WSUS data files 30GB drive F:\ )
I have created 2 groups - Server & Clients. Naturally the SBS box is in the server group and so far I have added a single PC to the Client group and both have had their status reported:-)
I also ran the original synchronization as specified in the documentation (succesfull) and set a scheduled synch overnight which also ran succesfully.
Now to the questions
On the Homepage of the WSUS in the To Do List I have an error, "One or more service components could not be found. Check your server status and ensure that the Windows Server Update Service is running. Non Running Service: SelfUpdate
Is that "Windows Server Update Service" called WSUS in the Services? if so I don't see it at all. I could have sworn it was there but I might be deluding myself?
I have spent a couple of hours trawling through technet and Googling and the most logical expanation I can find is a problem with Sharepoint which is described here http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/Library/b23562a8-1a97-45c0-833e-084cd463d0371033.mspx?mfr=true
I don't want to just start changing stuff without being certain that I am doing the correct thing so any advice would be welcomed.
Learning more every day:-)
