Speed up WSUS

In WSUS 3.0, in able to speed up the downloads (foreground mode), you need to run this command

“%programfiles%\Update Services\Setup\ExecuteSQL.exe” -S %Computername%\MICROSOFT##SSEE -d “SUSDB” -Q “update tbConfigurationC set BitsDownloadPriorityForeground=1”

To revert it back to normal, you can run the same command again and change the value to 0

“%programfiles%\Update Services\Setup\ExecuteSQL.exe” -S %Computername%\MICROSOFT##SSEE -d “SUSDB” -Q “update tbConfigurationC set BitsDownloadPriorityForeground=0”

Once you done that, you need to reset the update services service.
