Windows Svr 2012, WSUS 4 Problem not picking up computers
Posted on 2013-01-05
I am using Windows Svr 2012 and trying to setup WSUS 4 which comes a Role in Svr 2012.
Have been through the process of setting up the WSUS a number of times and it appears very similar to prev Windows 2003 & 2008 (which worked fine).
However I cannot get the workstations to find the WSUS server in Svr 2012.
No problems communicating with Microsoft in synchronising.
Have used the WID database (which Win Svr 2012 itself says is not a good idea) and the WSUS content is on non-systen drive.
Have tried to use SQL Express for 2012 - however the SQL Express Instance could not be found by WSUS, so back to using WID.
I believe the Database I am using is not the cause of this specific problem of workstation not finding WSUS (just another issue to look at).
Using AD and have setup Group Policy to connect ws's to WSUS. When I look at Windows Update on WS's it says the updates are controlled by Domain Administrator so that is good.
Still the WS's cannot find WSUS to get the actual updates.
Any guidance most appreciated.
