Our drive that currently houses the WSUS folder and the WSUS database folder is running out of space. Both folders are about 7 GB. I want to move these to a newly partitioned drive. I have been searching online and reading guides, and also read some instructions on EE.
I decided to go the easy route and just run the wsusutil command. I opened up cmd, navigated to C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools and copied the following command: wsusutil movecontent contentpath logfile -skipcopy gotten from the following website: http://rajkatyal.blogspot.com/2008/01/how-to-move-wsus-content-to-different.html
I hit enter and ran the command. It seemed to go unusually fast and was done within seconds. I decided to check the new WSUS directory and I saw that it had no WSUS files in it. I checked the old WSUS directory and saw that it still contained all of the WSUS files. I checked the wsuslog that was created and saw that the skipcopy command seemed to have stopped the wsus directory from copying over...
I tried running the wsusutil command again and this time cmd reported Fatal error: new file location is the same as the old location.....
As i understand, the wsus now thinks it needs to look at the new location however the new location does not have any wsus files in it. I guess the skipcopy command stopped the files from being copied over.
Any ideas on how to move the Wsus files over again in the new area?
Also, I have to deal with moving the WSUS database over as well, so any assistance on that issue would also be appreciated.
