permissions for the network service account and wsus 3.0 sp1
Posted on 2008-11-06
Hello guys and thanks for your time and input.
Here's my scenario and question:
On Wednesday around 4pm (est), I finished installing wsus 3.0 on a windows 2003 server. In a short amount of time, about thirty pcs showed up in the admin console. The next day, around 4pm, I had 139pcs. I'll check tomorrow for more but is this normal or should these pcs be showing up faster.
I have the GPO set on our computers OU and have run gpupdate /force several times.
- These are cloned PCs so I'm not sure if the SID was reset so I'll check that tomorrow and let you know.
- My second question is after the install, and everything seemed to go smoothly, should I have granted the Network Service Account full control of the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework on the wsus server. I've read where that could prevent computers from showing up in the console. Am I just being impatient or does it look like I have a problem. Anyway, your input on this is greatly appreciated.
