    WSUS internal database V SQL2008

    I am testing out wsus at a single server site and just wanted info as to using the built in database or using sql2008 database that also has sims, fms on.

    If the wsus goes down and is installed with sims that would also go down, so I am leaning towards using the internal system.

    Has anyone else gone down the internal path?

    We've used the windows internal database for ~500 WSUS clients without issue. It occasionally needs some TLC, but it's easy to script - google "wsus cleanup script"

    Does it put the internal database on c? During the install it asks for the wsus update files location but not where to put the main program or internal database. I have one small school with minimal space on C and the sql 2008 datbase is on D with lots of space.

    Can someone check if it puts the internal database with the main program or the update files location.

    It slings it in the update files location on 2003 and 2008. So DriveLetter:\WSUS\UpdateServicesDbFiles
