Hello All,

I am getting the following problems.

I have two domains both with a WSUS server installed, On my test server it has a connection to the internet and all is working.  The other system has no access to the internet, I have set this system up with a standalone.  Once the patches have been approved, installed and tested on my testing domain, I then follow this process to move them to the standalone server.

1. Backup the wsuscontent directory on the test server
2. Export the metadata from the test server
3. Move both files to the standalone system via DVD
4. Restore the wsuscontent
5. Import the metadata

The system is then able report in with the required updates, I am able to approve the updates but not install as the following message is displayed

The files for this update have not yet been downloaded.  The update can be approved but will not be available to computers until the download is completed.

Can anyone suggest where I might be going wrong.
