WSUS does not exist in add server roles on 2012 server

    Question

  • HI,

    I cant seem to find the WSUS server role in add roles and features on the select server roles page in windows server 2012. I am logged on as a local admin and it isn't in the list.

    Not sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    What is your windows server 2012 version?You need to install WSUS on the standard,enterprise and datacentre version. 

    Also,Pls try to check whether it is RTM,rather than RC.

    No! As Clarence already said, you need Standard or DataCenter editions of Windows Server 2012 to install WSUS. (There is no "Enterprise" edition anymore.)

    And to be clear, installing WSUS on a DataCenter Edition would be a colossal waste of money, so from a practical perspective... WSUS requires Standard Edition. Period.

  • Heya,

    Here is a screen shot of what i can see in the add server roles section.
    No WSUS seems to be there. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Thanks
