I need to set up the following distributed management configuration:
1 WSUS Active Software Update Point Server (ASUP)
5 WSUS Downstream Servers
The ASUP Server is located in our main office, where our global Internet connection is located, all other 5 offices are connected to the main/central office via MPLS network links, hence the 5 Downstream servers.
We have Windows 2003 Active Directory in place.
As far as the server installation and configuration goes, the installation wizard is pretty straight forward, but Im stuck trying to add the first WinXPSP2 client to one of the downstream servers.
Can you please provide me with detail instructions as to how can I direct WinXP clients to get the Microsoft updates from the local downstream WSUS server rather than the Microsoft Update site?
If your advice is to user GPOs please be very specific with the steps I should follow.
