How do I migrate all WSUS update content into a new SCCM installation

I have a current live WSUS server we're using for deploying Windows updates.  I recently setup a new SCCM server that we plan on replacing the WSUS server with.

I'd like to know if there's an easy way to transfer all the update content and computer groups from our existing WSUS server to the new SCCM one.  I was able to perform a sync on SCCM from Microsoft Update so all the updates are in my list now.  I tried running the wsusutil export/import but none of the updates in SCCM are flagged as being approved like they are in WSUS.  

Is there a way to do this?  Is there also a way to import the computer groupings from WSUS into SCCM or will I have to recreate them?

Hi

You have to create new collections (groups) in SCCM and also approve all the updates again. There is no import feature from WSUS.

Thanks for the post.

Do you have any recommendation as to where to put the Deployment Package share and what account needs permission to access it and deploy the updates?

I usually put the update package on the same Distribution Point that I use for other packages.

The account that access the share is the Network Access Account. You set the account under Site Management - Site name - Site settings - Client Agents - Computer Client Agent

If your are looking for some best practice about patch management in SCCM I recommend reading the articel from Christopher Stauffer
