Ok, we have planned our installation and now we should have a better understanding of how all these components integrate together. It’s time to put all that we have learned to work, and install and configure Endpoint Protection

WSUS Server Role Installation 

  • For this lecture, we will be installing WSUS on the ITFSCCM01 server. Open Server Manager, click Add Roles and Features, click next, click next again. From Server Selection, verify that the installation server is correct, then click next.  
  • From the Server Roles screen scroll down and check the box next to Windows Server Update Services, click add features, click next, then click next again.
  • From the WSUS screen, click next, then next again
  • From Content Location Selection screen choose a valid local or remote path for storing updates, in this case I type C:\EndPUpdates, then click next.
  • From the Confirmation screen, click Install 
  • From the Results screen, confirm a successful installation 
  • At this point, there is no need for further WSUS configuration. You do not need to Launch Post-Installation tasks, only click close.

Configuration manager will be used to download, synchronize and deploy our updates, so there is no further WSUS configuration necessary.

For verification, the WSUSCtrl.log file provides information about the configuration, database connectivity, and health of the WSUS server for the site. Open this log file using CMtrace.exe. CMtrace.exe is a real time logfile viewer for System Center Configuration Manager. It can be found on the SCCM server installation folder in this case on ITFSCCM

C:\SC_Config_SCEP_1702\SMSsetup\Tools

For this lecture, here is location of the log file – C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs\WSUSCtrl.log
