Export patches from 1 WSUS server/or manually download patches and import to another (disconnected) WSUS server?
Posted on 2010-09-17
I have 2 WSUS servers on 2 different networks. WSUS Server A is connected to the internet and WSUS Server B is NOT. WSUS Server B has not been able to download updates recently because of issues with the Upstream Server on that network (beyond our control). Instead of waiting for them to fix the issue on their end, we'd like to maintain patching on this network..
Is there a way I can manually export the data/patches from WSUS Server A and import it into Server B? Is it easy as exporting the database and importing it in? Or is it more complicated than that??
And if I can't do that, is there anyway I can manually download the patches themselves and somehow make it available to our disconnected WSUS server for deployment?
Server A is a Windows 2003 Server, WSUS 3.0 SP1
Server B is a Windows 2008 Server, WSUS 3.0 SP1
.. And is there issues if one is a 2003 server and the other is 2008??
