  • WSUS Question

    hello All

    I have installed WSUS Sp1 Followed The prompts and selected the option "Use the Update Services
    Console".

    No clients are showing in Unassigned [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Computers[/COLOR][/COLOR] (or anywhere else) even after
    a week.

    Clients variously run XP SP2 or SP3. They have not been cloned. Servers run
    Server 2003 SP2.

    What am I doing wrong? I really don't want to mess around with GPO's until
    I've got the simple case working.

    When i go to a client machine http://[servername:8530 I get website declined to show website?

    Re: WSUS Question

    have you setyup a gpo to point the clients towards the server ?

    They won't do it automatically. You HAVE to setup the gpo to tell the clients that's where the updates are...


    if you don't want to do it globally, you could edit th local system policy on just one computer (yours for instance) and then you'll see it report to the wsus server

        Re: WSUS Question

        policies are applied in following order:

        LSDOU - LocalSystem,Domain,OrganisationlUnit


        a locla policy will apply only on that computer, allowing you to test it.
        aGPO Will normally apply to a domain, site or OU.

        you mention it's already configured in the GPO. What other options do you have configured, relevant to WSUS ?


        tried wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow on the clients?

        the C:\windows\windowsupdate.log file may give some pointers as well

          WSUS isn't the Windows Update website. You won't see a local version of that if you use a browser.

            I believe the difference is that during the logon process there is some handshakes/secruity/checking that is not proformed when you just access it from the website. (I could be COMPLETELY wrong, but thats how I look at it)

            But tehcamel has a good idea, just apply it to a GPO that only effects your computer, restart your PC and see if its reporting in the WSUS console.

              the windowsupdate.log file will also tell you what's going on....

              you need to ensure that the gpo also has the appropriate option to tell it to manually check. no good hasving just the url.


              and as wofen said, you cannot use your browser to connect to wsus, it uses dotnet service calls more than actual user interface

                Double check WSUS is on port 8530 -- the option is not port (default port 80)
                Check the WSUS admin console and the main server page will show you the port to use

                Also check RSOP that the policy IS being applied

                  The difference is that that address is used by the Wsus (or SUS) client to communicate with the server.
                  Is the selfupdate tree directory configured properly?
