Use the Synchronize Server task to synchronize the selected WSUS server with its upstream server. Review a server's synchronization information on the Server Settings tab of the 3rd Party Updates > Administration > Update Servers > yourWsusServer view.

SolarWinds recommends that you schedule regular synchronization tasks for your WSUS servers to ensure they have the latest updates at all times. Complete the following procedure to schedule or execute a synchronization task from the ConfigMgr console.

To schedule or execute a synchronization task:

  1. In the left pane of the ConfigMgr console, expand 3rd Party Updates > Administration, and then select Update Servers.
  2. In the center pane, select the WSUS server you want to synchronize.
  3. In the ribbon, click Synchronize Server.
  4. Complete the Task Options Wizard to schedule and/or execute the synchronization task for the selected WSUS server. For additional information, see "The Task Options Wizard".
