WSUS GPO and SCCM 2007

Posted on 2012-09-11

For years we have used WSUS and have had GPO settings configured to work with it.

Now we are moved over to SCCM 2007 to do our deployments and Software Updates and etc.

We are running into a lot of computers having errors or failing with the updates.  I am seeing conflicting information on the web stating that is is because I still have the GPO settings set for WSUS.  Now I have modified it, where it doesn't go to the old server anymore, I just left that part blank to allow the SCCM Client to configurfe that portion.

Do I still need to have Automatic Updates Service enabled, disabled or what?

Users are seeing the yellow shield and they should not be.

Any suggestions?

    You need to remove that GPO altogether. SCCM does not need WSUS server to send updates to clients.

    SCCM clients get the files from SCCM fileshares (DPs).

    Let me know if you need some web page which explains the process.
