I want to deploy WSUS 3.0 across a few servers. We have external offices that have servers with a slow WAN link -- so I wanted to use DFS to coordinate.
This is the question I have.... let's say I have 3 servers -- A, B, and C -- all in different AD sites and geographic locations.
I set up WSUS 3.0 on Server A, and store all files into \\domainroot\dfsrootname so that all the files are dumped into DFS.
Now how do I set up the downstream servers to take advantage of the DFS root, so that they themselves aren't downloading content? Or... should I just point them to download to the same DFS root? The only reason I ask, is because I don't want them to have problems with downloading the content and then fighting for file access or whatever on the DFS share. I intend to configure replication between Servers A, B, and C so that the files are always local to each server.
Let me know if you have any insight!
