    WSUS Installation

    I'm new to WSUS i have installed the WSUS software on my Server Windows Server 2003. I have synchronised and got all the updates.

    I have gone to a workstation and in the address bar typed

    \\servername\selfupdate - and it comes back saying

    The website declined to show this webpage
    HTTP 403
    Most likely causes:
    This website requires you to log in.

    What you can try:
    Go back to the previous page.

    More information

    This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage.

    For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.



    Do i need to install any client software it is a XP SP2 client.

    I'm confused

    Re: WSUS Installation

    You must define the windows update policy in a GPO.

    Computer Config -> Admin Templates -> Windows Update

    IIRC.

    Re: WSUS Installation

    Running the following on a machine will register it with WSUS:
    Code:
    wuauclt /detectnow /resetauthorization
    Also, you can check C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log for errors.

    Re: WSUS Installation

    I have a script that does this for all the computers in a domain/OU. It does this what Geoff mentionens above but then leaves a marker so that it does not run again.

    LEt me know if you want it and ill PM or post it here.


    Infact IIRC i think i had it off these forums in the first place.

    Re: WSUS Installation

    Faza - how are you getting on?

    IMHO the whole thing sounds like a group policy issue - apologies if this seems a like a "sucking eggs" scenario but have you

    (a) checked that your pcs are in the correct OU that the policy is being applied to (top level?) It may be worth (i) creating a separate policy for WSUS and then (ii) applying it to a separate OU eg / ict suite first

    (b) does your policy point at the WSUS server? Is the IP address / server name correct?

    Re: WSUS Installation

    Oh and for the sake of pete, jerry and the grandkids.. make sure your PC's all have different ID's if you used ghost to clone them.

    Always fun trying to get it to work when the WSUS server thinks there's just one PC..
