I am playing around with WSUS on S2012 R2. Its in a test environement.
I have installed it and (for now) disabled the windows firewall on all of the devices.
Firstly I have performed an initial sync with the MS servers and it now says there are 8000+ updates that need approval. Many of these updates are not relevent to the PCs/Servers I have.
What I should have done first is narrow down exactlt what OSs I want the updates for.
I dont want to have to manually go though the list approving all the updates I need.
Is there a way I can reset WSUS to before i did this sync?
Also the devices on my LAN that need to look to WSUS for their updates where not detected. I onky gave it a few hours but in the end I ran wuauclt.exe /detectnow which did the trick. Will I need to run that on all devices to get them into the WSUS console or would that happen anyway if I gave it enough time?
I have configured all devices to look to WSUS using GPO.
