Hi, we've just migrated to WSUS v3 from v2. One thing - how do i geet access to the webpage or console to administer?

We used to connect via a browser using http://%servername%:8530/wsusadmin/
but this doesn't seem to work.

    You cannot use the webpage anymore to access the WSUS console.

    You must use the start menu

    On your WSUS server, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Microsoft Windows Server Update Services.
