WSUS and Me

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Well today I had quite the fight with WSUS, maybe i just wasn’t full focused today or something, either way, I finally got it working, the Default Domain Policy was over-riding my Organizational Unit “Domain Controllers” I basically blocked inheritance from Group Policy and set up a specific Group Policy Object specifically for my OU “Domain Controllers”

There was one website which helped me out in ‘forcing’ WSUS detection, normally one would type “wuauclt /detectnow” but at the time it didnt seem to work, so i utilized a tool called WSUS – DETECTNOW 2.0 which basically performs the same thing except you can also trigger detection for approved updates and can reset SusClientId too.

One wouldnt normally have to force a WSUS Detection if the companies Group Policy was configured properly though, this just speeds up the process 🙂
