Directing Clients to local servers for approved updates

Discussion in 'Update Services' started by Tony R Giboney, Mar 22, 2007.

  1. We presently have a single WSUS server centrally located that all clients are
    reporting to. We want to direct clients to their local windows server for the
    updates that are approved, is this possible?

    Thanks in advance

  2. Only if you install WSUS on each of those site-specific servers. I generally
    do not recommend creating remote WSUS Servers unless there's a
    business-critical reason for doing so. If you already have all clients
    updating from the central server, I would suggest leaving it that way.

    If, however, any of those clients are on a remote site with bandwidth
    availability < 10kb/sec per system, then a remote WSUS server would be a
    recommended solution, especially if a remote file server is already

    Also, exceptionally large sites, regardless of available bandwidth, are also
    good candidates for using a remote WSUS server, particularly if the server
    infrastructure is already deployed.

    Refer to the WSUS Deployment Guide (available from the link
    below) for detailed information concerning various multi-server deployment
