Hello Exports,

I inherited a windows 2008 WSUS server and want to retire it completely and start fresh with a new server. What is the proper procedure to completely uninstall this box and start from the beginning? I also want to recreate new Group policies.

Thanks inadvance,

build the new WSUS, change your group policy, remove wsus from the original server, delete the wsus saved  files folder.. I'd actually rather move them to the new machine (saves re downloading from microsoft)
