WSUS Automation Server Routing Rules ASRR

Table of contents

Updated June 8, 2016


Sometimes the Automation Server Routing Rules (ASRR) can be confusing, especially with WSUS. This article explains how the Automation Server Routing Rules are designed to work.


All Patch Manager versions


When creating a WSUS Automation Server Routing Rule, note that the rule you create is ONLY for the WSUS server. It will not work for the workstations or containers reporting into that WSUS server. The workstations will need their own Automation Server Routing Rule to specify the Automation Server the job is carried out on. You can do this with either Computer ASRRs or Subnet ASRRs.


For more information, refer to creating Automation Server Routing Rules.
