  • Reinstall WSUS with old settings,updates,content etc?

    Hi All,

    I have got following situation

    1. wsus 3.0 sp2 was installed on windows server 2008 R2

    2. For troubleshooting wsus, I had to unininstall asp.net services

    3. This also removed wsus, but I asked it to leave the wsus updates, content, database etc on server

    4. I have to now reinstall wsus after re-adding asp.net services

    5. I want to do wsus 3.0 sp2 installation in a way that it uses updates, content and db etc from old wsus

    I cannot find a guide or steps to do this. Can someone please tell how can I do that?

    Many Thanks

      Thanks for your reply tehcamel

      I am not clear about how would I point new installation of WSUS to use old updates. For example my old updates are located at w:\updates. And then there are two folders in there (UpdateServicesDbFiles, WsusContent). I believe these are the folders which contain old wsus content and database.

      Please tell me if I am right in gathering following from your reply

      1. Start wsus installation, give it a new path to store updates during installation. For example D:\Updates

      2. Stop services

      3. Copy the two folders (UpdateServicesDbFiles, WsusContent) from w:\updates and paste into D:\Updates

      4. Start Services

      This will make new installation of WSUS to use old updates and content, is that right?

      Thanks
