Just wondered how big peoples files are that are gewtting downloaded by WSUS. I reinstalled earlier this week and its still downloading.
Says it needs a total of 23GB and its downloaded 8.3Gb.
I've checked the language and the packages I use and they seem fine, seems alot in service packs and updates.
As above, really depends on what you've specified to download. I only distribute security updates, updates and update rollups. Service Packs are huge and just eat up disk space.
For example, at most of my sites I have specified Office XP/2003, XP and 2003 Server only. Everything else is unticked.
In WSUS 3.0 (under options) there's a cleanup tool you can use to delete old/expired updates which can help on disk space.
Just seems huge thats all.
Only got XP and 2003 server ticked, Office 2007, 2003, SQL 2005 and driver.
I suppose it's because of Microsoft's fancy thing that means it only downloads the parts of the file which has changed from the WSUS server to the client. It must have to have a slighly different patch for every possible version of the file?
mines 8 gig. wsus 3 has the option of a cleanup, might be worth running it once its all down.
Only got a 1meg line so its very slow, looking at my lovely graph on the Schoolguardian log page my connection has been maxed out for the past 24 hours.
Think its half way done now.
Just wondering is there any way to set WSUS to tell the clients to update from the web rather than downloading all the updates it's self i know that kinda goes against the idea of WSUS but server is short of space at moment until new budgets.
Yeah thats what i was thinking, oh well request form in for new HDD lol
You beat me to it I just spotted it on the new WSUS under update files and languages
I just tried to install WSUS on my Server 2008 VM, and was told that it cannot store updates on a network drive... does anybody know of a way around this as I don't really want the updates storing on the .VHD?
