Have a Hyper-v host running just that and nothing else.
Created a Virtual Machine where i will be running just WSUS....well i see you can add this as a role in hyper-v....was wondering...and search everywhere..

Do you need to have SQL installed when using WSUS in hyper-v or do you just install the WSUS role and thats it..

why and why not?

I know if i was using just a plain machine it is recommended to install SQL for Performance this the same for the Hyper-v WSUS Role????

Is it better to have SQL Server 2005 Express installed..

Using Server 2008 ENterprise X64....thanks,
