SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 Migration – WSUS, SUS and GPO Deleting Step Caution

The migration we are running this weekend is an SBS 2003 Premium RTM with SP1 installed to SBS 2008 one.

So, in this particular case, we have the manually created GPOs in place for the downloaded install of WSUS v2:image

The Migration steps call for the deletion of the following SBS 2003 R2 based GPOs:

  • Small Business Server Update services Client Computer Policy.
  • Small Business Server Update services Common Settings Policy.
  • Small Business Server Update services Server Computer Policy.

In this case, and any other where SUS/WSUS was manually installed on SBS 2003 RTM, we need to be mindful of which GPOs to delete.
