Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
Is SQL on the SBS 2003 server you are using? That is a requirement for WSUS to work.
On SBS WSUS was installed with a separate DVD called R2 Technologies. Do you have that?
hopefully the download of 3.2 has the sql part too because it is removing that by default
The version that comes with SBS is also not licensed for use on another/different server.
This might be an extremely stupid question being as my AD server is my SBS server and WSUS is on my windows server but where do I edit the GPO on the windows server or the SBS server?
FYI, WSUS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD FROM MICROSOFT. The only license agreement states :
Do not use WSUS to distribute updates to client computers that are not licensed for your organization. The WSUS license agreement specifically disallows this.
i am currently installing the latest version of WSUS so I don't encounter any problems.
Did you install report viewer 2008??
will it eventually find all computers on my network/domain?
Still a little concerned it won't pull updates for Vista or 7 because there is no check box for that in the Options section.
From your screenshot, if you click on "WEBSERVER", what server version is displayed??
Do you have enough space for 118GB to be downloaded??
Under Options>>>Update files and Languages>>>Update files Tab....Do you have "Download update files to this server only when updates are approved" selected ???
should it be checked or unchecked?
so now I am on server version 3.2.7600.251
Let's first verify that a client is getting any WSUS gpo
on a client from cmd prompt type
reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
Yes, you should go to the same policy that pointed it to server-b and modify it to point to your WSUS server
you can either use RSOP.msc or gpresult /v to find out
But gpresult /v from same cmd prompt gives you info ??
try gpresult /v >>c:\result.txt
Try running gpupdate /force /logoff
then log back in and try again
ADUC from SBS
Do you still get that error after a reboot ??
There are many articles on the net on how to do this, and the official MS doc found here:
It is a quick read. Steps 5 and 6 should give you what you need, but you should verify starting at the top.
Did you specify your target group names in GPO ??
