Problem in configuring WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed WSUS over windows Server 2012 and after installing the same I am not able to configure it as I am getting below mentioned message - 

    The locally hosted wsus server requires additional steps in order to complete the installation. WSUS post-installation process can run those steps for you .Would you like to run it now.

    It is also asking for content directory path.

    Pls help in this regard

  • Hi,

    finish the post installation steps.

    Wsus content is directory on your server where updates are going to be stored. It takes approximatelly 130 GB (no additional language variations and Win7, Win8, Win10 platforms) and there is no big requirements for disk speed. So depends where you have your free capacity...

    Don´t store your WSUS content on same partition as operating system. WSUS content will grow in time.

    PS: You can additionaly change wsus content location by using command line.

  • Hi ashishcase82,

    Have you run post-installation step after installing WSUS role, what is the result of post-installation, if the process is failed, then there will be a fatal error, you may provide the information for us.

  • Hi Anne,

    This message is displaying right before post installation steps and it asks for content directory path.
