SBS - WSUS V3 SP1 Hiccups

While we have had success with allowing the SP1 of WSUS v3 install on SBS R2 instances, there have been a few hiccups:
  • Make sure to have your scheduled reboot scripts in place when updating remotely.
    • The service pack will break the RWW connection ... serveral times ... most of the time it will not be permanent.
  • You may get a Blue Shield from the SBS WSUS console if the settings were changed during the setup portion of the Service Pack.
  • Make sure the first synchronization finished before refreshing the Blue Shield in the SBS console.
  • If the WSUS based update fails, as we have had one do so far, download and run the Service Pack directly. This seems to work.
  • Make sure there are no consoles open during the WSUS Service Pack application.
Once finished, you will be good to go.
