Recommended Posts

In Part 1. of this series we Installed vNext.

In Part 2., we then Configured vNext to use the New AD Site as a boundary and Configured Discovery Methods in vNext.

In Part 3, we installed the Reporting Point Role along with some additional roles and configured them.

In Part 4 we configured the client Agents and deployed the vNext Client.

In Part 5 we deployed an Application to All Users.

In Part 6 we added Windows Deployment Services, added the PSP role, added the Windows 7 Enterprise image, and updated our boot image for Deploying Windows 7.

In Part 7 we created our Build and Capture Task Sequence, enabled the Network Access Account, Advertised (Deployed) the Task Sequence, and created a new hyper-v virtual machine for capturing the wim on.

 

 

Step 1. Add the WSUS role to our vNext server.

 

On our vNext server startup Server Manager. Click on Roles and click on Add Roles.

Click Install when prompted and review your results when done.

At this point the WSUS role will be downloaded and then installed. Depending on your internet connection this could take some time.
