Removing primary WSUS server from site
Posted on 2006-11-20
Looking before I leap - I have WSUS installed on one of my servers. This worked fantastic untill this server ran out of drive space. The Server ran Win2K server SP4 in a mixed 2K/2K3 AD domain.
I then installed WSUS onto a second server, this is set to synchronise from the primary server.
This also worked perfectly. (This server runs Win2K3 server standard with SP1 and 80GB free for WSUS.)
I noticed that my second WSUS server does NOT have an option to synch from Microsoft, ONLY from my primary WSUS server.
I need to remove WSUS from this server along with all it's updates.
Can I just plainly un-install WSUS from the primary server, and will the second server's WSUS start synchronising from the Microsoft Update site??
I don't want to bugger it up and have to re-download the nearly 10GB of updates as bandwidth costs are quite high.
