  • WSUS is managed through a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, not a web-browser. On the WSUS Server itself, the snap-in should be in the Administrative Tools folder of the control panel/start menu, or if you are using a workstation, install Remote System Administration Tools (RSAT) for your version of client Windows, and you'll see the snap-ins in the Administrative Tools folder of the control panel/start menu, where you can launch them and connect to the remote server to manage (recommended way).

  • Once you get in and start moving around,

    Please have a look at the WSUS Automated Maintenance (WAM) system. It is an automated maintenance system for WSUS, the last system you'll ever need to maintain WSUS!

    https://community.spiceworks.com/scripts/show/2998-wsus-automated-maintenance-formerly-adamj-clean-wsus

    What it does:

    1. Add WSUS Index Optimization to the database to increase the speed of many database operations in WSUS by approximately 1000-1500 times faster.
    2. Remove all Drivers from the WSUS Database (Default; Optional).
    3. Shrink your WSUSContent folder's size by declining multiple types of updates including by default any superseded updates, preview updates, expired updates, Itanium updates, and beta updates. Optional extras: Language Packs, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Embedded, NonEnglishUpdates, ComputerUpdates32bit, WinXP.
    4. Remove declined updates from the WSUS Database.
    5. Clean out all the synchronization logs that have built up over time (configurable, with the default keeping the last 14 days of logs).
    6. Compress Update Revisions.
    7. Remove Obsolete Updates.
    8. Computer Object Cleanup (configurable, with the default of deleting computer objects that have not synced within 30 days).
    9. Application Pool Memory Configuration to display the current private memory limit and easily set it to any configurable amount including 0 for unlimited. This is a manual execution only.
    10. Checks to see if you have a dirty database, and if you do, fixes it. This is primarily for Server 2012 WSUS, and is a manual execution only.
    11. Run the Recommended SQL database Maintenance script on the actual SQL database.
    12. Run the Server Cleanup Wizard.

    It will email the report out to you or save it to a file, or both.

    Although the script is lengthy, it has been made to be super easy to setup and use so don't over think it. There are some prerequisites and instructions at the top of the script. After installing the prerequisites and configuring the variables for your environment (email settings only if you are accepting all the defaults), simply run:

    .\Clean-WSUS.ps1 -FirstRun

    If you wish to view or increase the Application Pool Memory Configuration, or run the Dirty Database Check, you must run it with the required switch. See Get-Help .\Clean-WSUS.ps1 -Examples

    If you're having trouble, there's also a -HelpMe option that will create a log so you can send it to me for support.

  • If all 3 WSUS Servers are on the same domain, or within the same forest, you should be able to just open the WSUS Console on your machine after installing the RSAT Tools and right click on Update Services and 'Connect to server'. You should be able to connect to all 3 at once from the Same MMC snapin.

  • Hello,

    Any update?

    To manager WSUS server, to access WSUS Admin console, you need to have Administrative Tools installed, and then open WSUS console, by right click Update Service and choose Connect to Server, you should be able manager all your WSUS server within one console. 

    Regards,

    Yan
