Remote SQL WSUS and downloaded updates
I have configured WSUS to work out of our production SQL database, and it
seems to be connecting fine...
However, I had an issue when trying to approve updates so they would
download automatically. Seems as though the updates were wanting to store
themselves under c:\program files\update services\Content, when there was in
fact, no 'content' folder there - so then, I would receive the following
error in the event log every time I tried to download approved updates to
Source: Windows Server Update
Event ID: 364
"Content file download failed. Reason: Error calling
[kernel32.dll]:CreateDirectory(C:\Program Files\Update Services\Content\E5)
Source File: Destination File: ."
When I manually created the 'content' folder, the update (I approved only
one as a test) downloaded fine. Obviously, this is a glitch that somehow
made it past the testing folks.
So, my question is: Will my updates be saving to this folder unless I
specify differently somehow (I assume by using the WSUSUtil.exe utility), or
will these files move to the proper location that I specified during setup,
which is 'D:\WSUS'?
Very strange, if you ask me.
