Running the wizard on WSUS 3 sp2

On September 7, 2009, in WSUS, by

After the WSUS 3 sp2 installs, there is a wizard that pops up.  You can hit cancel… or you can just be a SBSer and click next next next next next next……

How to run the WSUS 3 sp2 wizard and not break the WSUS integration with SBS 2008 (or 2003 for that matter)






Click start connecting


Ensure you pick English (or your specific language), Next

Leave it at ALL PRODUCTS.  Next

(This doesn’t download Biztalk patches to your server, this setting just ensure that as you add new computers with various products it will offer up the proper patches)

Ensure you pick at least Critical Updates, Security Updates, and Service Packs are selected under Synchronization Options, Products and classifications, update classifications.  I unchecked drivers as a FYI.  Next.

Set a auto sync  — or leave as is.  Next.

Click finish.

The one area that most uncheck things which in turn “breaks” the integration is the “all products” section.

    Drivers too? Really?

    Didn’t work for me, although I did it incorrectly the first time (I didn’t check “all products” for the the “all products” section). I still get the blue shield in SBS 2003.
