Any one know if it is ok or not to load v2 and v3 of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services in the same domain?

We currently run v2 on a server at each of our sites. I am looking to install v3 on a new server in our main site prior to disabling v2 on the old server.

Any experience out there?

    There's no reason why you can't. However, if you are going to update WSUS on one of the servers, I would highly recommend updating it on each of the other servers in due course, to ensure things are fully patched and up to date WSUS-wise.
