New WSUS Build
Posted on 2017-11-14
My current WSUS environment has been running for about 6 years and is almost completely useless at this point. W3WP.exe and SQLSERVR.exe memory and CPU usage are through the roof. Clients have to check multiple times because of timeouts and this has become a huge issue. I have run all the cleanup scripts and installed recommended WSUS patches and still poor performance. I have now setup a new server and right now it's getting the metadata from Microsoft. I'm 66% through and right now it is showing 11,000 updates. I've chosen all classifications except for drivers. This will take forever to download. Is there a way to point the new WSUS server at the existing WSUS server, that is local, and then switch it back to Microsoft after the downloads are complete? There are a few categories that are enabled on the new one that are not enabled on the old one but I can sync those from Microsoft later. Downloads will be a lot quicker from a local server. Thanks.
