slow connection after BITS upgrade on w2k srv machine

Discussion in 'Update Services' started by Joerg Riether, Jun 7, 2005.

  1. Hello NG,

    we just installed the new released wsus to our w2k server which is still
    running sus (according 100% to the docu how to install wsus to a server
    already running sus).

    NOW: we had to download and install the BITS2.0 upgrade package.

    After this install, the internet connection of the new wsus server when
    getting updates from
    ms is unbelievable slow. We have a T2 Connection and when I use wsus to
    download or when
    I start the normal windows update locally on this special server, download
    rates are about
    56K speed.

    If I use IE6 locally on the server to download sth from the web, I get the
    FULL and standard
    T2 speed.

    Any idea WHAT this could be and how to solve this?

    best regards

  2. Joerg... keep in mind that about four gazillion people are doing full system
    synchronizations for the next several days. Be happy with the 56kb, but
    start complaining after the weekend.

    For reference purposes, the average throughput observed during the RC was
    only about 200kb/sec.

  3. How can you find the throughput? I'm curious about mine - just for my own
    personnel curiosity.

  4. Hell...YES...that could finally be the solution;)

    Thanks for getting me back to reality - I just realised how many
    wsus installs are synching right now their stuff.

    best regards and have a great day

  5. there are several network monitoring tools which will fit your needs
    regading THIS special case, I personally have a nice per-system-speed-meter
    at my firewall;)
