WSUS Offline RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working in a company with two offline networks.

    Network A for development, so needed updates are, for example:

    - Windows 10
    - Microsoft SQL
    - Windows Server 2016

    Network B for daily use, so needed updates are, for example:

    - Windows 10 & Windows 7
    - Windows Server 2016
    - Microsoft Office
    - Skype for businesses

    Basically, some updates are similar in both networks and some are required only in one of them.

    My question is: Can I work with ONE online WSUS server (for exporting all updates) and TWO offline WSUS server (for import, one in each network)?

    More precisely, I want to download with the online WSUS server ALL the updates > export them to a removable device (content & metadata) > connect the HardDisk to each of the WSUS servers > import for each network its relevant updates (which I chose on each WSUS on the Options >"Products and Classifications").

    I hope my question makes sense and understandable - If not, let me know and I'll try to re-phrase it. :)  

    Thanks in advanced.

  • Hello, 
     
    Yes, you can.
     
    The export and the import WSUS need to have the same setting for Download express installation files and Languages options.
     
    Then you could use the wsusutil export/import command to transfer the metadata and manually copy the binary files.

    And it is not required but recommended that the export WSUS server and the import WSUS server have the same OS version.
