I'm testing SUS and if I use the wsusutil.exe to change the directory where wsus stores the updates, I get an error message. I want to store the updates on a NAS Server. Therefor I mapped a drive (\\server\wsus). That doesn't work. Is there a way to do this? I don't want to use a local disc.
Sorry for my bad English, I'm from Germany...
I don't think that WSUS supports storing the updates on a network drive, I copied this from Microsoft WSUS
site, the answer was given by one of the chat moderators. I personally have not tested this so I pass along their answer.
Q: Just to clarify Krishnan...i can keep WSUS on current machine, and move content to a shared drive as long as it is mapped? If i need to move WSUS to another machine, the website cant be used remotely from a different IIS server?
A: WSUS requires the content files to be present on the local drive. Having content live on a mapped network drive is an unsupported scenario"
