    WSUS update storage

    2 problems here.

    1. I have just configured WSUS to work on the server and in the computers section there is a list of the schoos computers as expected, but only 6-7 have reported in. The rest just say 'not yet reported'

    2. My biggest worry, problem no. 2, is that any downloads i approve are being downloaded to the servers c: drive. this is now running dangerously low on disk space. How do i configure WSUS to store the downloads on another local hard drive?

    any help appreciated.

    1) It takes a while - give it a few days for them to report in. If some are still not reporting in, stop the windows updates service:
    Code:
    net stop wuauserv
    and delete the reg key here:
    Code:
    REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientId /f
    then restart windows updates and force it to redetect.
    Code:
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow
    If you're prepping a computer image for deployment, don't restart windows updates or reset the authorisation. Instead, also delete the following reg keys:
    Code:
    REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v AccountDomainSid /f
    REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v PingID /f
    Sysprep and NewSid don't (iirc) reset the susclientid, hence why some imaged machines won't report in.

    2)
    Code:
    wsusutil movecontent $DriverLetter:\NEWLOCATION C:\nameoflogfile.log
    Check the options first.

    Pete's already mentioned the basic command you need, this goes into a little more details:
