WSUS) Add new downstream replica server without data download. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 WSUS servers. A, B, C

    Main WSUS(A) has internet access. but others(B, C) NOT.

    I syncronized main WSUS(A) with MS. 

    and link downstream server (B). 

    now I add new downstream server (C), 

    when I copy WSUS files(DB and Contents) from B to C.

    It works Fine?

    actually I already done.

    it works. but,

    (A) has only one downstream server linked. (B) or (C)

    I think, (A) think (B) = (C). cause actually (B) and (C) have same DB, adn files...

    when make downstream server, just only one way? 

    It must sync, and download files?

  • to avoid downloading all updates again, you can export and imprt the updates

    You should not just copy the files and db. I'm pretty sure that will cause many issues, now or in the future

  • Thanks for your great kindness!!!!

    your answer is very helpful to me.

    but I have some more questions.

    for solve this problem, I deleted WSUS of (B). and, make a new SUSDB.

    import DB works well.

    but (C) has still problem. (C) can't delete WSUS, ERR code 0x80004005

    can you give me some more help?
