    WSUS and domain controllers?

    I was checking our WSUS server the other day when i noticed it does not list the DC's. I also noticed that when my other server receive the updates via WSUS the DC's don't.

    Is this correct or have i set up my WSUS incorrectly?

    DC's go into a seperate organisation unit in Active Directory, so you've probably applied a policy to member servers only.

    There's nothing wrong with setting WSUS policies on the Default Domain Policy. This'll do the trick

    Just remember not to set automatic reboots... bye-bye DC!

    I find it better to assign a non essential server (is there such a thing ..?) in the same group as the workstations so that if it gets a server update that sends it awol it can be established and cleared up without taking the others down.

    The computer I use is running server 2003, setup with helpdesk, my own intranet with resources for techies and network shares for ghost images etc. This updates before the other servers and if there are any problems they can be sorted without too much fuss.

    I can also use the AD snapin to change AD without remoting into the DC, always helpful.
