  • hi

    I am installing WSUS 3.0 SP2 on windows server 2008 R2,and my network is not connected to outside world.
    When trying  to install wsus i am getting error IIS or Additional IIS Role services must be installed.

    On Server Roles page, i have selected Application Server and Web Server (IIS).

    For IIS roles i have selected ASP.NET, Windows Authentication, Dynamic Content Compression, and IIS 6 Management Compatibility.
    Am i missing anything else.

  • On Server Roles page, i have selected Application Server and Web Server (IIS).

    Application Server is not required.

    For IIS roles i have selected ASP.NET, Windows Authentication, Dynamic Content Compression, and IIS 6 Management Compatibility.

    The requirements for installing WSUS are documented in the Deployment Guide. Have you checked there?

    Configure Internet Information Services

    And what you'll find there is this section:

    The following IIS services must be installed and running for WSUS to work:

    • HTTP Static Content
    • ASP.NET
    • Windows authentication
    • Dynamic content compression
    • IIS Metabase Compatibility
