WSUS import issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Long time reader first time poster. We are trying to use the patches we downloaded with the WSUS Offline software (wsusoffline . net) with the Microsoft WSUS server setup on a domain controller without any internet. We have went through installing the WSUS server but cannot get the updates to load. Any information would be helpful or do we have to use another WSUS server setup with internet connection? I have not found a solution after hours of searching so figured I would ask on here.

    Thanks.

    It won't work. :-)

    If you need to supply patch content to a WSUS server on an offline (disconnected) network, the supported procedure for this scenario is documented in the WSUS Deployment Guide. Please see Configure a Disconnected Network to Receive Updates.

    Have a look at http://wsuspackagepublisher.codeplex.com/ and
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/localupdatepubl/ With this Tools you
    can publish updates to clients/servers. You must download the updates
    manually.

    If you are a german, you can read this HowTos: http://wsus.de/lup

    In WSUS you can setup a WSUS with internet Connection, prepare a wsus
    without a internet connection and transfer the updates.
