Software Update Services

Hello Experts,

I am trying to implement the Software Update Services to install Windows Critical Updates on my network. I have read up on the white papers and everything , but I would like to some tips from some individual who has already implemented it.

I am planning to run the service on our Web Proxy. Is that a good idea? Microsoft does say that SUS should run on a server of its own , but it doesnt say anything about SUS interfering with Web proxy services.

Any kind of help, tips , comments would be appreciated.

I have deployed SUS several times, and it works pretty good.  I have used both group policy and modified the registry to config the clients.  The only thing occasionaly it takes some clients a day or 2 to recieve the updates, which is better than not at all.  And alot of clients dont want to reboot in the middle of working which some updates require (the client has the option of not rebooting).  You also need lots of hard drive space and lots of bandwidth.  The SUS server will download all available updates, you just choose the ones you want deployed.  As far as web proxy, I dont think that will cause problems

hope that helps
