The information in this section can help you bring Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) running on Windows Server® 2008 R2 into compliance with operation best practices. This is most useful to administrators who have completed a Best Practices Analyzer scan of WSUS, and who want information about how to interpret and resolve scan results that identify areas of WSUS that are noncompliant with operation best practices.
Operation rules are applied to identify best-practice-related possible causes when a role is unable to perform its prescribed tasks in the enterprise. One example of a violation of operation rules that a Best Practices Analyzer scan might find is a service that is paused or stopped.
