Export WSUS Views

In Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) it’s often advantageous for larger environments to create different views. Those who already works with the WSUS console know that this can take a bit longer.

So that this tedious work does not have to be repeated, for example if a colleague needs the same views, it can be easily exported via a small workaround.

Simply copy the following file and then paste it to the required user:


Important: The WSUS console must be closed during both export and import!

Tip: I already had the pleasure of seeing the WSUS file corrupted one day (probably due to an error of the MMC). Fortunately I was able to restore the file from the VM by a veeam backup. So it’s best to create a backup after defining the views!
