We are trying to setup WSUS 3.0 sp2. I am unable to find out the DB req. We will be installing it on a SQL 2005 SP2 clutser, however I need to let the DBA know the DB size. Is there any documentation regarding this?

Hi!
All that info is in the Release Notes. You can get it here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=ba94a0d3-f22a-4e24-877e-6be6ce5da6d7&displaylang=en

Here's the bit you're looking for:

WSUS Server Hardware Minimum Requirements

¿¿Both the system partition and the partition on which you install WSUS 3.0 SP2 must be formatted with the NTFS file system.
¿¿Minimum 1 GB of free space on the system partition.
***>>>¿¿Minimum 2 GB of free space on the volume on which database files will be stored.
¿¿Minimum 20 GB of free space is required on the volume on which content is stored, 30 GB is recommended.

Greetings,

- Jimmy

According to the link, it seems the DB only needs to be 2 GB, will it get any bigger at some point or that is just how big it will get?

As you can see, it says Minimum, so yes it could get bigger depending on data.
Thats why they give a global minimum:
-->Minimum 20 GB of free space is required on the volume on which content is stored, 30 GB is recommended.

Ya sorry, my bad, the 20Gb is indeed for the content.

Nevertheless, DBs do grow depending on data, usually by 2Mb increments. (This can be configured at the DB level).

Cheerios,
