Hi,

I’m trying to synchronize a downstream WSUS server with my upstream server but it is taking a very long time to download the files(has been running for days).  I heard you can copy the update files, stop all the services, restart the services and re-sync and they would all pull in.  I tried this and it didn’t work.  Has anyone done this that can give me some pointers? Both servers are Windows Server 2003 R2 SP1 running WSUS SP1.
