Windows Server Update Services connector configuration
In Name, enter a logical name for this connector.
You should use a naming convention for connector names:
<connector type> <scope> <RCR>
Scope describes where data is coming from or what it's being used for. For example Demo, Test, Lab, Q2 Audit.
In WSUS Database Server, enter the name of the SQL Server instance where the Configuration Manager database is hosted using one of the following formats:
- In WSUS Database, enter the name of the database you want to connect to.
- If you are authenticating with Windows:
- Ensure Use Windows Authentication is checked.
- You do not need to populate the WSUS SQL Server User and WSUS SQL Server Password fields.
- If you are authenticating with a SQL login:
- Ensure Use Windows Authentication is unchecked.
- In WSUS SQL Server User, enter the name for the account you want to use to connect to the database.
- In WSUS SQL Server Password, enter the password for this account.
Check the Run Consolidation Reports checkbox if you want consolidation actions to be processed each time the Sync Data action is executed for the connector.
This can lead to unnecessary processing if you enable this on more than one connector. The recommended method of processing consolidation actions is to schedule the action Generate Report - Basic Inventory Consolidation to execute after the Sync Data actions have run for all connectors. This will execute the remaining consolidation actions. Alternatively check the Run Consolidation Reports checkbox on one of your connectors. You can view action processes in Settings→Process log .
