Hi All

I volunteer at a Computers for Schools orginzation and I am trying to setup up Windows Software Update Server on Server 2008. We use XP OS on the computers we setup. I am trying to save time by using WSUS for updates instead of downloading them from Microsoft. We do not have the fastest connection with the ISP. I am having troubles getting IIS 7 setup up. Does anyone have any experence with seting up WSUS? I have set group policy objects and my test computer shows up in my WSUS manager.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Would you state what you exact problem is? When installing WSUS, the IIS part is installed automatically. You do not need to configure it UNLESS you already have another website configured to use the same port. Please be more specific and I will try to help.

Sorry for the slow response.

I am not using any other web server. My problem is I do not think WSUS is working correctly. I have troubles pushing out updates and I do not know how to check for updates on the WSUS from the client. The other problem is the client computer gray's out the options in the update control panel. I am thinking that it is making a change in the registry when it joins the domain. The option were available before it joined the domain. This would have to be changed back after computer is set up and sent out but I do not know were the change is made. These computers go to different schools and disadvantage families so automatic updates would have to be turned on. The other thing I do not have enough experience to know which updates to approve. I this case my little knowledge dangerous. I was trying to come up with away to save some time setting up the computers. Downloading over 100 updates from Microsoft takes awhile with one computer, doing several at a time really slows things down.

Thanks for your reply. Doug
