WSUS 3 and XPE (Embedded) give status but the machines don't update (no repository on WSUS 3)
Posted on 2009-04-14
We have WSUS 3 running with XP, 2000 and 2003 machines just great. Our XPE machines are reporting status, but don't seem to update.
So... the question is, why won't my XPE machines update? I am getting status for them, but we are setup such that we DO NOT have a repository on our WSUS3 server. We want them to pull direct from the internet since they are remote offices and they would KILL our VPN/WAN bandwidth. I'm wondering in XPE if it behaves the same way XP/2000 and 2003 do, whereby they pull updates from the internet but use WSUS as the "traffic cop" for directing updates, etc.
