Software Update Point-Based Installation Isn't Working

Recommended Posts

Getting workstations to automatically install the client agent via SUP shouldn't be a complicated matter. It should simply entail 1) enabling this method of installation from the administrative console and 2) configuring a group policy object that directs computers to use the SUP as their WSUS source. After that, computers should receive the client agent as a critical update.

 

Or so I thought. Worked fine in 2007, but my 2012 computers aren't getting the client. It seems like the GPO is the only real point of failure here, but there's not much to it. The GPO currently has two configurations. One specifies http:\\SUPserver.domain:80 as the WSUS server, and the other configures computers to download and install updates once a day.

 

I've looked at the Windows-Noob guide, and it doesn't look like I'm missing anything.

Hi,

Did you use a GPO to assign the client installation back in SCCM 2007 ? the GPO is tatooing so it will still point to the old SCCM 2007 environment, could that be the issue?

Jorgen, thanks for the reply.

 

Yes, I used a GPO in 2007. I swapped out that GPO with a new one. It's definitely working in terms of setting the WSUS server location in computers' registry. It's just not pushing the client.

 

I should add that I incorrectly provided http:\\SUPserver.domain:80 as the location for the server. It's actually http:\\SUPserver.domain:8530, as the server in question is running Server 2012.
