Moving WSUS Server Updates Folder

יום שני, יולי 6, 2009

If you’re using Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), there may come a day when you need to move the updates to another drive. Once WSUS has been installed, the WSUS Administration tool doesn’t let you do this, but you can do it using a command line tool called wsusutil found in C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools. I’m running version 3.0 SP1. The command is:wsusutil movecontent logfile.log x:\WSUS (where x: is the new destination) If you have already copied the content (make sure you’ve set the correct permissions), you can run: wsusutil movecontent logfile.log f:\WSUS -skipcopy ...

The client logs are located in the %WINDIR%\System32\CCM\Logs folder or %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\CCM\Logs (for x64 OS).The SCCM server log files are located in the <INSTALL_PATH>\Logs or SMS_CCM\Logs folder. IIS logs can be found in %WINDIR%\System32\logfiles\W3SVC1 folder. NOTE: Use the Trace tool included in the SCCM Toolkit or MS Log Parser to easily view log files.   Client Log Files CAS - Content Access...

יום חמישי, ינואר 15, 2009

No matter how careful you are. No matter how many times you’ve checked your parameters and state conditions. No matter how many times you tested it out of production. It happens. Some misconfigured rule - or even an event that happens much differently in a production environment then in test - begins firing off alerts.  Maybe you don’t notice it right away - perhaps you haven’t setup notifications for this particular rule...
