using SCCM 2012 RC in a LAB – Part 2. Add SUP and WDS

In Part 1
of this series we got our AD and SCCM servers ready, and then we
installed System Center 2012 Configuration Manager as a standalone
Primary site. Now we will configure the SCCM server further by adding
some Windows Server roles necessary for the
following Configuration Manager 2012 functionality, Software Update
Point (SUP) and Operating System Deployment.

Step 1. Add the WSUS Update Services 3.0 SP2 role

Perform the following on the SCCM server as SMSadmin

Before starting this step create a folder on D:\ called sources and share it as sources, give Everyone Read access.

We’ll need the WSUS role 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 (so you’ll need a network connection to the Internet)

after a while you’ll see the Welcome to Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 setup wizard appear click next (which is probably hidden behind the active window, so in your system tray find it and click on it to show the wizard otherwise you’ll be twiddling your thumbs for a long time wondering whats going on)

checkmarks in all languages except English (well if you want other
