WSUS in a DMZ

I was building a new server in the DMZ and got the following error when attempting to add the WSUS role.

WSUS Error

After doing a bit of research it turns out that WSUS is not included in the binaries for 2008 R2 and either needs to be downloaded from Microsoft or an existing WSUS server.

Since this server has no internet access I had to approve KB972493 on the existing WSUS server and then added the role successfully.

Customize EvoLve Theme Social Buttons

I’m using the EvoLve WordPress theme on my site and I wanted to customize the social buttons for Twitter and Google+ since they were both out of date.

It is fairly straightforward to accomplish:

  1. Download a copy of the social-buttons.png file from wp-content/themes/evolve/library/media/images
  2. Open up the file in your favorite image editor along with the new buttons you wish to use
  3. Resize the new images to 30×30 pixels and copy them over the old buttons
  4. Save the new file and upload it to your host
