    Looking at your server specs jamin100, I would install WSUS 3.0 onto your second server. It's running less services, but it also has slightly more disk space.

    WSUS is memory and hard disk hungry and not so much CPU intensive. The only tip I can offer to cut down on disk space is don't install Service Packs using WSUS. Also, WSUS 3.0 has a Cleanup tool which I'd recommend you run every few months. Something WSUS 2.0 greatly lacked!

    Sophos Em 3

    Run's Quite well..

    I know the server is a little over kill but it is servicing 300+ machines.

    Ebuyer are doing an Hp proliant ML110 dual core xeon 2.3ghz, 1gb ram, 250gb disk and 3 year nbd warranty for £175 at the moment, assuming your not updating thousands of clients i'm sure that should do what you want. Obvoiusly will need a copy of 2k3 installing.

    Would be updating no more than 120 clients.
    That looks like a good spec machine, I need one that will run Policy Central on it too. So £175 looks good. + the £400 for server 2k3

    Are you an educational org? If so then server 2003 should be around £50

    If you set up a wsus on a seperate server that runs only wsus do you need to buy new cals?

    We buy our CAL's when we buy new equiptment, so there per device.
    So i don't think i'd need to.. Well hopefully not anyway... CAL's confuse me.

    I've just installed WSUS on one of our old decomisioned servers, it used to be a very very old NAS server. it's running a Zeon 2.4Ghz CPU, 1Gb RAM and 500Gb HD space spread over 3 disks. I downloaded all updates needed for our equipment and it took up about 40 Gb.

    It's quite easy to set up.. but definately read the whitepapers on it before you start.

    One thing to be careful of, especially if updates haven't been done for a while, don't let it go and push updates out across the network straight away, wait the evening or weekend, we didn't think about it, but the extra bandwith useage brought our network down to a crawl for the entire day.. DOH!!

    I'd also recommend not letting it push out any updates automatically!

    I'm always hearing people say "this update killed this, that one killed that".

    We always test each update before releasing it.

    HI

    We have to allow it to push out updates as we dont have enough tech time to do the job and yes it does break the occassional machine but normally when someone truns off the machine when updates are installing.

    Im gonna be setting up a temporary WSUS server until i get around to using SCCM.

    Ive got a LaCie NAS thats basically an Epia 1Ghz/256Mb ram & 2x500Gb HDDs that i have running as storage server.
    Would that be good enough for WSUS?
