    Finding WSUS server site name on Server 2003

    So I'm learning how to set up and use WSUS. I installed it fine with the help of the useful guide, but now I'm trying to connect clients to it and I'm falling down at the first hurdle. When installing WSUS I didn't take note of the name of the server site, and after googling repeatedly I can't discover how to find it. Does anyone know where you can find this? I've looked all over the WSUS admin console, and in the IIS Manager (it was installed to the default site there) and I can't find anything. It's making me sad, I was really excited about getting this up and running!

    For Group Policy it should be http://SERVERNAME (for both entries)

    If you didn't install WSUS in the default directory, it would be http://SERVERNAME:8530 (for both entries)

    WSUS itself can be accessed within Administrative Tools > Microsoft Windows Server Update Services 3.0

    Is it actually 'SERVERNAME'? Or is that a placeholder for the actual personalised name, which is what I can't find?

    It will be whatever the name of your server is. For example the machine name for my WSUS server is HOMER so the address is http://HOMER

    As above, typically a school server may be named CURRICSVR1 or ADMINSVR1, so the path would read http://CURRICSVR1

    To find the server name, right click My Computer > Properties > Computer Name (tab). Look for 'Full computer name' SERVERNAME.DOMAINNAME. It's just SERVERNAME you're after.

    I've just tried it out and it works perfectly! Thank you so much, I can't believe it was such a simple thing. I always look too deeply into things!
