I have a virtual VMware Windows Server 2008 R2 with WSUS. The server broke down and I had to install a new server with the same OS. I want to move the WSUS server including its configuration from the old server to the new one. I have added the WSUS role on the new server, but how can I migrate the WSUS?

    Great. No problems following this guide but I've found that there is no WSUS website on the new server. Can I somehow export and import this as well or will I have to add a new website?
