products list in isolated WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • My isolated WSUS server does not include a list of updated Servers and other products.  Windows Server 2008 R2 and Office 2010 and other newer version of software are not listed.  I need to match my settings between the connected WSUS and isolated WSUS.  How can I update this list?

    Products and Classifications are updated on the disconnected server when you perform the wsusutil import from the connected server.

    The Products and Classifications settings DO NOT need to match between the connected and disconnected servers. As noted in the Deployment Guide, there are only two settings that must match prior to performing a metadata import (although, in reality, there are three). They are:

    • Language settings
    • Express Installation file settings
    • AND.. both servers must have a local content store (should be kinda obvious, but...)

  • Hi,

    When you perform a synchronization with Microsoft Update, product classification s and categories will be updated. If this is a replica server, you cannot specify products and classifications.

    Schedule WSUS synchronizations using the WSUS Administration Console

    Hope this helps.

  • Hey Lawrence,

      Thanks for the clarification on the Products and Classifications.  I noticed that after I did the wsusutil import the products and classifications changed.  So this particular discussion is no longer an issue.
