    My employer is running WSUS2.0 and I've been tasked with upgrading this to WSUS3. I'd like to achive the following if at all possible.

    End up with WSUS3-SP2 running on Windows 2008-R2 with SQL Express 2008-R2
    Ensure I keep my Existing Approval List

    So, After doing some reading of the Deplyment Guides, I realised that I would have to install a nice new server with WSUS2 (then inplace upgrade this to WSUS3-SP1) to keep my approvals list (have approx 4000 Workstations in the company).

    However, has anyone been able to install WSUS2 onto Windows 2008-R2, SQL 2008-R2 then run the WSUS3 upgrade?

    Just looking for a bullet point idea of how I get there without having to build 3-4 servers as tempary jump points?

    Many Thanks
