    So, is anyone still using SUS? if so, are you having or had the same issues?

    Hi kat, try the following..... In the SUS Server machine, go to "Content" virtual directory in your IIS and change the local appointing to a correct physical directory on the machine.


    See if that makes a difference to installing updates

    Note that a web filter can make SUS or WSUS not update correctly.

    Also some patching in IIS and M$ security updates, plus IIS changes, over a period can break SUS easily. The folder resetting sounds plasible and worth a try btw..

    Yep WSUS is the way to go - though you really need a dedicated box.

    We use a 5 year old department server that is out of warranty and otherwise would be decommissioned.

    For WSUS make sure:

    1. Only WSUS on the box as per MS best practice
    2. Lock it down but watch for a nasty little issue that can arise between WSUS and SCW...ie WSUS install post-SCW can be a problem.
