WSUS Replica Server Windows 2003

Hello Experts,

I had a one WSUS server domain until recently when I deployed a replica WSUS server in my branch office. Everything seems to be working but I had one question.

Are computers in the replica's site supposed to also report back to the main WSUS server? It is reporting fine in the replica's computer status but also reporting (also fine) in the original WSUS server. Just want to know if this is how it's supposed to work.

Thanks! =)

That's the normal behavior
Downstream servers roll up information to their upstream server immediately after they synchronize

So just to test it, I deleted the computers that was reporting in the branch office on the original WSUS server yesterday. The WSUS servers sync'd this morning and when I check the original WSUS server, the computers are not there.

According to the article and your comment, both WSUS servers should sync immediately that I am not seeing. I will manually sync both servers again and see if anything changes.
