    MS WSUS 3.0

    Is anyone else here using WSUS 3.0? If so do you know how to tell it to re-apply failed installs?

    Also i'm getting confused with this. The console has a stat for updates "Computers installed/Not applicable" How is this helpful!! It's either installed or not applicable. How is grouping these Two together going to help you know what the actual status is!! I know you can go further in to check the status but with the old version you could see straight away whether an update was needed or not.

    seems to work, bit long winded though.

    Only a couple of updates have failed. Renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder on the station in hand would try to download/install everything again!!? There must be a way from the console that an update can be reapplied!!?

    No. You can only monitor.

    Shame. I thought this would have been a handy built-in feature
