WSUS - How do I set this up?

Hi All,

Is WSUS free?

How do I set up WSUS on my server to connect to all the PC's in the domain and push Windows Patches.

Yes it is free, you should start with the Microsoft documentation   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708519(WS.10).aspx

The wsus team also has a blog  http://blogs.technet.com/b/wsus/

In short you setup a wsus server and point clients to it (using a GPO)

Thanks

Step by step Installation and configuration of WSUS 3.0:

Once the WSUS server is installed and all the patches are available you need to link the client to WSUS server.You can achieve the same by configuring the GPO.
