Installing Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) on a Member Server

Hi,

We've got a customer where WSUS was installed on their domain controller (DC). This DC needs non essential applications removing off it in order to reduce the load on the resources.

My question is can install WSUS on an additonal server that is not the DC or a backup DC? The new WSUS server could be either a Windows Server 2003 or 2008.

Hello,

you sure can, it can be any server - and does not have to be a Domain Controller.

Sorry,

I forogt to add that the server does not even need to be on the same domain or in a domain at all.

The SUS Clients identfy themselves using a unique SUS ID which you can arrange into groups on the WSUS Server.

Thanks for your advice, we are going to install WSUS on one of the additional servers in the domain
