In Part 1. of this series we Installed vNext, in Part 2 we started to configure it. In Part 3,
we configed Beta 2 some more by enabling Active Directory discovery
methods, adding some site system roles, configuring the computer client
agent and client push settings and finally doing a manual client
installation to verify it all worked, in Part 4
we looked installed an application using Application Management and the
Software Catalog and Software Center features of SCCM 2012. Our next
task is to add WSUS and then add some additional roles which we’ll use
later on in this series (Windows Updates and Data Migration in OSD).

Perform the following on the vNext server as SMSadmin

Step 1. Add the WSUS administration Console

We’ll need the WSUS administration console installed as part of the
Software Update Point role installation in the next step, so start Server Manager
and click on Roles, Add Roles. Select Windows Server Update Services
and a window will pop up asking to add role services required for Windows Server Update Services (IIS Dynamic Content compression), click Add Required Role Services

click next through the wizard, you’ll see the Select Role Services window appear, click next again

at the confirmation click Install, the WSUS role will be downloaded and
if you are on 3G like me that’ll take a bit of time, so take a break and
have a cup of coffee :)

after a while you’ll see the Welcome to Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 setup wizard appear click next

To install WSUS SP2 you must accept the terms of the EULA, which are
probably hidden behind the active windows, so in your system tray find
it and click on it to show the EULA otherwise you’ll be twiddling your
thumbs for a long time wondering whats going on…
