Deleting the WSUS update repository RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a site server and a remote WSUS server setup as a software update point.

    I have created deployment packages and specified a new share on the WSUS server for the downloads to go to.

    Is it safe for me to delete the OLD WSUS repository directory that contains all the patches from when I was using WSUS solely?  SCCM isn't going to use those for anything since I'm specifying a new directory for deployment packages, correct?  There's 16GB disk space being used that I'd like to recover.

  • Ok, think I got it licked.  I resynced the updates and then ran a wsusutil reset on the WSUS server.  This initiated the download of the approved updates and seems to have gotten things rolling again.

  • That's correct the old updates aren't used by Config Mgr. The server will download the binaries again and store them in the source folder of your deployment package.

  • I have deleted the repository as was suggested but I'm finding now that my EULAs for approved patches are now gone.  As a result my SCCM clients are not longer installing patches because the EULAs are missing.

    Is there an easy way of getting these back without having to manually approve each update that I have created update lists for in SCCM?
