Do you manage Windows Update Services through Virtual Machine manager (VMM)?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

You can use Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) to manage your Windows Update Services (WSUS) directly, instead of using the server management itself.

To find full explained instructions on how to set this up, see here.

Before starting, you should take some things into consideration:

  1. The WSUS server must be in the same domain as the VMM server;   2. Best practices dictates that you should use a separate server to be a WSUS server;   3. After you add a WSUS server to VMM, you should use the VMM console to manage it, and not the WSUS console.

After taking these into consideration, you can start deploying update baselines, which contains a set of required updates scoped to objects, and adding update exemptions as necessary.
