Microsoft, Google and Adobe

WSUS on a new network

Windows Server Update Services Home.

How many of you use WSUS?  I have used it for a while and had it working on my network for a long time.  Now we are part of a larger network so I'm starting over with WSUS.  I got it installed on a new server a couple of days ago and just added it to the active directory GPO yesterday.  I had one setting wrong in the GPO and figured it out a minute ago and clients are starting to report in.  I guess I am a geek to love messing with something like WSUS!
