    System Center 2012 WSUS question

    Hi all,
    I know I am being a class A goon here but have the following question / scenario...

    I got stuck installing WSUS in my System Center 2012 R2 so bought in a few hours of support from a local company to get it running which they did. The only problem I now have is I can not see how to change what products it searches for and hope someone can point me in the right direction.
    Opening WSUS direct and going to Options / Products and Classifications leads me to a page informing me I can only change this from the upstream server. I could select the WSUS Server Configuration Wizard however I am under the impression this could cause issues within SC 2012. I certainly can not find an option with in SC2012 to change what product updates it search's for and just want to add Windows 8.

    No doubt all I need to do is press a button here and there but am paranoid of screwing the thing up.

    Thank you

    You're right it can cause issues if you change things directly in WSUS, so it's best to always do most things within SCCM. To select the updates you want do the following.

    Click the administration tab (bottom left) > Expand site configuration > click sites > right click your site name > configure site components > software update point. You can then choose products to download updates for on the products tab.

    Hope this helps.
