WSUS and SharePoint on the Same Server Part 3

Installing WSUS

Utilizing the Steps in this doc:

1. Installed the sofware requirements
1.a. MS IIS 6.0 (Already installed)
1.b. Update for Background intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (Already installed)
1.c. MS .NET Framework Version 2.0 (Already installed)
1.d. MS Report View Redistributable (Already installed)
1.c. MS Management Console 3.0 for Windows Server 2003 (KB907265) (Already installed)
2. Install Windows Server update Services 3.0 SP1 Setup
2.a. Mode: Full server installation including Admin Console
2.b. website address http://SERVERNAME:8530 #the installation detected SharePoint already and did not even give me an option to use the default website of port 80
3. Run Windows Server update Services Configuration Wizard.
4. Create and apply the group policy in AD. Makes sure to address the update server with the correct port.

Life is good! The client computers are showing up in the WSUS console. I am grouping 'em by department and creating one group as FIRSTINSTALL. I place one computer from each department in this group and apply the updates there, first. IF no issues I will roll out the updates to the entire enterprise.

Now, I need to spend some time customizing the SharePoint Helpdesk application.

More to come...
