WSUS 3.0 SP1 Upgrade on Windows Server 2003 R2


Had an interesting time today trying to install the latest version of Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) in my environment.  Things started out well.  I approved the WSUS 3.0 SP1 update on my WSUS 3.0 Server and my Vista client (where I have the client WSUS Admin Tools installed) immediately notified me that the SP1 update was available for WSUS 3.  Without thinking (perhaps I should update the server first….) I clicked INSTALL and tadaa, a reboot and I was upgraded.

My server on the other hand didn’t pickup the SP1 update from "itself…." and when I hit Windows Update on the Microsoft site it didn’t pickup there either.?.?  I’m guessing it’s because I’m running R2 of Windows Server 2003?


Oh well, no matter.  I grabbed the update from HERE and manually updated my WSUS server.  Just bounced the box and ALL is well.

NOT a groovy experience MickySoft 😉
