Migrating WSUS server from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2012

    Question

  • I'd like to migrate my existing WSUS 3.0 from Windows Server 2008 R2 to a new Windows Server 2012 server. How can I do this without having to download all my updates again? I'd also like to keep my current config of client PC and servers etc.

    I can already manage WSUS on W2K8R2 from my new WS2012 server using the new Update Services console.

  • Get Code 80244019 on client when attempting to check for updates.


    WSUS on Windows Server 2012 installs to port 8530 by default -- be sure that you have appended the port number to the URL in the GPO.

  • Hi, Stephen

    This procedure is described in technet documentation, take a look at

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh852339.aspx

    Also there is another way, that much easier (i didn't  tested it with WS12, but i think, nothing can't prevent it)

    Install WSUS on your WS12

    Make new WSUS on WS12  a replica of your existing one (it synchronize updates and  inherits the update approvals and computer groups created on its parent WSUS administration server.)

    After successful update synchronization (metadata and update files), you can turn off/remove old WSUS  make new WSUS on WS12 as upstream and configure GP in order to assign you clients on new WSUS server.

  • I followed the technet article (took a while...). Now my issue is that the clients can't see the new WSUS server. I've updated the group policy and done the following on a client:

    gpupdate /force

    wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow

    wuauclt.exe /reportnow

    Get Code 80244019 on client when attempting to check for updates.
