    Hi,
    I installed WSUS in the 2003 server box. Now I try to add computers in
    domain into the computer group of WSUS.
    I opened WSUS admin console. clicked on computers. There is no computer on a
    group. How can I add them to the group. Thanks

  2. Hello QuyNguyen,

    Did you add the wuau.adm to your administrative templates in a GPO and configure
    the policy for the machines? The computers can only report to the WSUS server
    if they are configured to do it.

    Best regards

  4. Hello QuyNguyen,

    On the OU where your computers are located add a new Group policy object
    WSUS workstations for example. Computer configuration, rightclick Administrative
    templates and choose "Add/remove templates", remove all listed ones, will
    not have an effect for other GPO's, and add the wuau.adm Now you can configure
    the settings for the WSUS server, how you like to update the machines etc.

    Best regards

  5. Hello QuyNguyen,

    Do NOT install WSUS on a DC, use a member server with a lot of disk space
    and a good NIC.

    On the clients you have to run "gpupdate /force" or reboot to apply the policy,
    you can check with "gpresult /v" on the client to see if the policy is applied.

    Then you have to wait until the client reports to the WSUS server. You can
    force it with "wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow" from the run line
    on the client.

    Best regards

    Thank you very much. I tried to create an OU in domain controller. How can
    I add server5 (wsus server) to this OU?

  7. Hello QuyNguyen,

    You have to add the computers that you like to update to the OU not the WSUS
    server.

  9. Hello QuyNguyen,

    In server 2003 or higher you can just drag and drop, with 2000 you mark multiples
    at once and can rightclick them and choose MOVE. Then follow the structure
    where you like to move them. If you have them located in another OU make
    sure that if policies applied there will/could be removed.

    Best regards

  12. Hello QuyNguyen,

    Please post an unedited ipconfig /all from the WSUS your DC/DNS server and
    on e client. Also post the gpresult /v output. If the output is to long for
    the command window pipe it to a text file and copy it from the file:

    gpresult /v >C:\gpresult.txt

    Best regards

    I'm not familiar with this method.
    I've always configured a GPO in:
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components >
    Windows Update
    What's the advantage of doing it the way you suggest?

  14. Hello JohnB,

    The wuau.adm let you specify the settings in detail how the updates from
    WSUS are handled and how the client reports to the WSUS server.

  15. Hello JohnB,

    If you not have the wuau.adm copy the text below/above the lines to textfile
    and save it as wuau.adm, so you can check/test it.
