Adding Computers to WSUS Sever

Posted on 2007-10-16
Last Modified: 2011-02-08
Ive just installed WSUS onto one of my domain servers which is running Windows 2003 Server/Sql 2005. When I got to the Computers Screen, there are none of my domain pc's in the list (in fact the list is empty). How do I add my domain pc's into this list so i can configure the wsus server to update them. Furthermore, when the pc's are in the list, does the WSUS Sever turn off the pc's autoupdate process in favour of the wsus?

    It takes several hours for the domain computers to show up. Be patient. As long as you are running a domain and not a workgroup then they will show up.

    Yes, once you select the computers for control under WSUS then it will take over the autoupdate process.
