New to WPP, Couple of questions

Topics: Configuration Issue
Nov 18, 2016 at 7:09 PM
So I am trying to implement WPP, and I have a couple of questions.
1) I can't add software via UNC, so I mapped drive to the share but I cannot see the mapping via file browser when trying to add. Is there something I am doing wrong?
2) When I connect to the WSUS server and have the Connect to local server box checked, there is no issue. But if I connect without that checked, it says server version is different from console version. I am running this on the WSUS server, so how can that be correct?

After mapping the drive, did you restart WPP?

In Extras > Settings > WSUS Server you can activate [X] Ignore Console and Server Console mismatch. Why you don't want connect to local server?

After mapping the drive, yes I have restarted WPP. I still cannot see any mapped drives.
As far as connecting local, that IS how I am connecting. It's just something I noticed and wondered why the discrepancy.

Did you start WPP with extra Admin Rights? Rightclick > Run as Admin? If yes, did you map your drives as Admin too?
