    Running Sophos and the new 3.0 WSUS on same server.

    We are currently running Sophos (lastest edition) and WSUS 2.0 on the same server without any problems. This server is being replaced this year and we will be transferring these roles to the new server. What i need to know is this

    1. Is anyone currently running WSUS 3.0 and Sophos on the same server?

    2. WSUS 3.0 supports 64bit OS, does Sophos?

    3. What you reckon for a minimum spec server to host just these two roles?

    Sophos doesn't. I know that for a fact. See these previous threads on the subject.

    I am running both Sophos and wsus 3 on the same server but not the 64 bit version.

    They work together great.

    I stuck my Enterprise Manager installation on a virtual server, and it works a treat.
