  • Hi,

    It seems that update services 3.0 api samples and tools does not apply to WSUS 3.2 (Windows Server 2008 R2).


    If your purpose is to transfer the computer group and approval of the 2008R2 WSUS server, you can consider using the 2012R2 server as the downstream replica server of the 2008R2 server, and then disconnect the upstream and downstream relationship between them after completing synchronization.


    Hope the above can help you.
