    I want to try this at one of my schools tommorow, but they only have one Server which acts as the Domain, DNS, DHCP, Fileserver. Would adding IIS6/WSUS be okay? The server is a P4 3.06Ghz, 1.5Gb Ram, SATA, RAID and is used by less then 40 clients.

    Thanks
    I would definitely not put it on a DC. It's just that this thing becomes your one update source for all of your clients and servers and runs things like SQL. Even a low-end box would let you test it out to a degree.

    I run WSUS on several single server networks, mostly primary schools, and have had no problems with it. A couple of them are quite low spec.

    Didn't say it wasn't possible- it's just not something you should do. On a network with 40 clients it may not be that bad- especially if updates occur off-peak and in the background. If you run a medium to large sized network in a school and let WSUS do its thing during the day- and most days are busy- you're probably going to notice some performance degradation. Not to mention the fact that if let WSUS download updates to the local HDD for distribution you will be taking up *lots* of space...

    Hey. It's your party :-)

    Re: WSUS SP1

    Thanks to both kingswood and yeoman for the replies.

    The school has no other decent spare PCs I could use. Even if they did it seems that I need a box running:

    Windows 2000 Advanced Server; Windows 2000 Server; Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows Server 2003; Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-Bit x86); Windows Server 2003 R2 Datacenter Edition (32-Bit x86); Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition (32-Bit x86); Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition (32-bit x86); Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1; Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition (32-bit x86); Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition (32-bit x86); Windows Server 2003, Web Edition; Windows Small Business Server 2003
    Which means buying another license in addition to the PC :cry:

    Have another school that has a 64bit Windows 2003 Server I could try it on and SODS law has it that WSUS only seems to work on 32Bit OS!

    So thats both the Group Policy snap-in and WSUS the 64bit version doesn't run..... 8O

    Re: WSUS SP1

    Did any one upgrade from WSUS to WSUS service pack 1.

    Does it over write the current WSUS install, is it a new install with SP1
    built in or is it just a SP. It looks from the download that it is the
    complete WSUS install with the SP intergrated.

    Can anyone advise please?

    Re: WSUS SP1

    Windows Updates keeps trying to install WSUS SP1 on my servers. It keeps failing though. I'll probably manually install it when I have time.

    IIRC you only need it for Vista updates.

    WSUS SP1 Has just installed successfully on one of my servers and totally failed on the other. Apparently the following error is driving people to distraction all over the net.

    Microsoft Windows Server Update Services
    There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

    My advice would be to hang back on this one.
