Update installation from WSUS export package RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

          Is it possible we can start the Windows Updates directly with WSUS Export package..? , Because in our Test Environment we don't have bandwidth to distribute the package through network from Import WSUS server.so we can share the package through USB OR DVD to clients. 

    if we can able to install the updates to clients through Export package(Using power shell or some other method) it will be very useful. if you have any idea please share it here ..

  • Hi,

    The exported metadata and updates files are used to be imported into the WSUS server. We can not install these update directly.

    If you want to distribute the updates with removable media, we can download the update from Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Here is the address,

    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

    Best Regards

  • Hi Steven,

            Thanks for the reply , so you mean to say "We can not  install these update directly from export package" our goal is to have single Package from WSUS Export server to push into client directly and the same package will be  Import into WSUS Server 

    If you have any idea please share with me 

     Thanks

  • Hi,

    Thanks for correcting my clerical error.

    >>our goal is to have single Package from WSUS Export server to push into client directly and the same package will be  Import into WSUS Server 

    As I mentioned above, we can import the exported content file and metadata, but we can't install them directly.

    If we want to install the update directly, we need to download them from Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Best Regards.
