We have separate SIMS and FMS servers as you describe. We have SIMS workstation installed on the FMS server without any problems. When I run SOLUS with our setup, I can do it from anywhere (workstations included) and the update installers and patches always go to our SIMS\setups\ directory on the SIMS server. That includes FMS updates.
I can't guarantee this was the case before we migrated to FMS 6.91. Prior to that point I think we used to run SOLUS on the FMS server itself and never had any problems beyond those introduced in every new SIMS release
I'm still awaiting a fix for the Solus upgrade to FMS without SIMS issue. We've just had Capita in to do the 6.91 upgrade - by god I'm glad I didn't try and do it myself - in the end he had to copy everything off the server onto a laptop, do the upgrade and then copy it all back - he came with a fist full of CDs that I wouldn't've had access to - what a shoddy system it is...
