    WSUS experiences

    I'm sure you all know the replacement for SUS was released by microsoft last week. If you don't here's the relevant page:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...s/default.mspx

    I'm just wondering how everyones got on with the migration? I've transfered to WSUS ok and it seems to work ok. It took a very long time to detect all the machines and to download the updates though. One minor problem I do have is that some of the office updates refuse to download correctly. Has anyone else got that problem? and fixed it?

    I'm not having any luck with it at all. It's doesn't seem to like our Equiinet proxy/cache. SUS works perfectly.

    Presumably you've entered the proxy information in the settings?

    What errors are you getting?

    Re: WSUS experiences

    In the application event log...

    Event ID: 329

    "Synchronization failed. Reason: The underlying connection was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server.."

    In WSUS itself:

    "There was an error communicating with the upstream server. Please check your update source and proxy server settings on the Synchronization Options page."

    Proxy settings are all configured correctly. SUS and everything else works perfectly. The proxy logs are showing attempted SSL connections to update.microsoft.com on port 443.

    And your proxy allows SSL connections correctly?

    Re: WSUS experiences

    Is your proxy a sibling of another web proxy? run by your network provider for example?

    Considering that Win 2k is officially dead (as far as support for you and I goes) on the 30th of this month I would start at 2K3, which is a lovely fluffy server system. My advice would be to start playing with active directory now, immedietly, straight away, as this will be the main way you will administer your network. Getting to grips with how OU's and policies work and learning where all of the components are should be your main priority, closely followed by DNS. 95% of active directory problems will proberbly be traced to DNS and it is a major stumbling block for newcomers, especially as how you configure your clients and replication options. If you have any specific problems then please don't hesitate to post them here.

    Re: WSUS experiences

    Had a play with WSUS today - seems to be really good. Just need some HD space on the server *uh oh*

    Should be a decent way on keeping tabs on the client pc's and whether they have been updating hotfixes ...or not

    The new MBSA tool (ver 2) should be a decent addition to helping with this too The current ver aint bad, and I'm beta testing the new version at the moment, tho i had to remove it the other day - think it was making the system behave "oddly"

    Regards,
