Closed network WSUS server

I have a wsus server on the unclassed side that updates to microsoft. I have a classed wsus server on a totally closed networked and i can not hook any machine up to it from the outside. So what i want to do is burn the entire wsus content directory to a DVD and load it on the classed wsus server. Each week i will copy the new updates over by cd.

I copied the dvd of updates over,, maintained the file structure and put it in the wsus content directory.. It shows no updates ont he sus server. I got to reading up,, i need to migrate the metadata over also. I found the wsus tool that does that.. But it wants me to do each package individually. and it is over 2000 packages, no way haha.

Any ideas on how to copy all the metadata at one time? Maybe there is an ini file somewhere that stores it,

thanks

It does not appear to be saying that.  If you are talking about moving the metadata, it appears you would first export it (export.cab), then run the utility for THAT file, not for each individual package.


Relevant text:

To export metadata from the database of the export server
      
1.       

At the command prompt on the export server, navigate to the folder that contains WSUSutil.exe.
2.       

Type the following:

wsusutil.exe export packagename logfile

For example:

wsusutil.exe export export.cab export.log

That is, WSUSutil.exe followed by the export command, the name of an export .cab file, a space, and the name of a log file.

The package (.cab file) and log file name must be unique. WSUSutil.exe creates these two files as it exports metadata from the WSUS database.
3.       

Move the export package you just created to the import server.

i looked at that before, that has the utility on it, but it looks like it has to be ran for each package. I messed with the utility and thats all it would do. I already have the actual data copied
