Wsus server not updating itself
Everything is great in your environment except the bandwidth between branch offices and the main office.
Enabling the box is what makes this WSUS server act as a replica server for another one.
In the bellow picture you can see the OU’s from my lab environment. I named them that way so you can make a better image of what’s going on.
As you can see I created OU’s for my branch offices and for the HQ and in every one of them there are computers belonging to that office. I don’t want computers to update at the same time on all offices.
I presume you already have your WSUS server up and running in the main site, if not follow this guide then come back here to continue.
If you want everything to work smoothly the OU’s and the GPO’s need to be put in place.
