Manually synchronising WSUS

This guide was created to be used on a Windows Server 2003 machine with the WSUS role installed.

There should be an automatic synchronisation of WSUS updates which runs every morning. However when planning on installing Windows Updates on servers you may wish to run a manual update to ensure the most recent patches are pulled down.

To do so:

1. Log on to your WSUS server.

2. Click on WSUS on the desktop or run Start > Run > Adminstrative Tools > Microsoft Windows Server Update Services

3. Go to Update Services > ServerName > Synchronizations.

4. Right-click on Synchronizations and choose Synchronize Now.
