I have the following scenario :
1 Main WSUS server at HQ.
9 WSUS servers on 9 different vessels on 9 different networks over 256 KB satelite link covering about 50 clients / servers each.
What I thought of doing was to make the 9 WSUS server's, downstream servers connecting only to the Main WSUS server at HQ.
BUT. Then the replication option. Does this replicate EVERYTHING from EVERY WSUS downstream server?
Say that 1 of the WSUS servers onboard a vessel has 50 clients. Does this information get replicated to the OTHER WSUS servers onboard the other vessels?
As there is LIMITED bandwith on these vessels, I really do not see the point of each WSUS downstream server seeing all 450 clients and servers on all vessels when in fact they only have 50 pr WSUS server/vessel.
And, does the replicate option replicate ALL updates from the Main WSUS server or only the updates that are required by the different WSUS downstream servers?
Does this make sense? :)
