    Exclamation WSUS install on Server 2012 R2

    Hey guys,

    I am trying to install WSUS onto a 2012 R2 server, but when i install, it always fails, and comes up saying "The operation cannot be completed, because the server you specified requires a restart". I have restarted the server several times, and have done all windows updates. Google hasn't seem to have given me much help. Any ideas?

    Regards

    Harry

    you need a gpo for pcs you want to get updates.

    computer config\admin templates\windows components\windows update\specify intranet microsoft update service location then you put in the name\ip (i seem to find ip works better fomwtimes) of the server and if you accepted the defaults on server 2012r2 port 8530 so something like http://wsusserver:8530 in both boxes (and open up poty 8530 if the wizard diddnt do it for you

    gpedit just edits local group policy which will probably be empty you want rsop.msc or gpresult /h to see whats applied
