Join Brien Posey for an in-depth discussion in this video Configure software update synchronization to Windows Update, part of Windows 10: Plan and Implement Software Updates.
- [Instructor] Before WSUS can deploy updates to the clients on your network, it needs to synchronize updates from Windows Update. So, to do that, I've logged on to the WSUS server and I'm going to go to Tools and I'm going to go to Windows Server Update Services. So, this is the WSUS console. And what I'm going to do is go through the console tree to my server and then Options and then I'm going to click on Update Source and Proxy Server.
And I just want to make sure that Synchronize from Microsoft Update is selected, which it is, and I'll click OK. And then the next thing that I need to do is to set a synchronization schedule, so I'm going to click on Synchronization Schedule. And we have two options. We can synchronize manually or we can synchronize automatically. So, we need to set a time for our first synchronization. Right now, if you look, it's about 11 minutes until nine o'clock, so I'm going to set my first synchronization for nine o'clock a.m.
And Synchronizations per day is set to 24, so we're going to perform a synchronization once every hour. So, I'm going to go ahead and click Apply and click OK. And so now, my WSUS server is set up to synchronize updates from Microsoft Update.
