WSUS on Server 2012 Standard R2 with SCCM 2012 Standard R2 Proper Setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the proper setup (best practice) on setting up WSUS using Server 2012 Standard R2 to work properly with SCCM 2012 R2 Standard using Server 2012 Standard R2 on separate box?

    1. Is it using WID or database during the setup of WSUS using Server 2012 Standard R2?

    2. Once it setup properly on WSUS using Server 2012 Standard R2 either WID or database (using SQL 2012 Standard SP1), how do I connect with SCCM 2012 R2 Standard using Server 2012 Standard R2 on separate box?

    3. On SCCM 2012 R2 Standard using Server 2012 Standard R2 just need to add WSUS Role, right? Is it using WID or database?

    Thanks,
    Reza

  • 1. Generally, using the SQL instance you use for ConfigMgr is preferred.

    2. The Software Update Point connects ConfigMgr to a WSUS instance.

    3. See 2.

    It's just as Jason said. The SUP role in SCCM basically "sits on top" of the WSUS role, whether it is local or remote is up to you. You basically install WSUS on a server like you normally would WITHOUT configuring it. I have used both WID and SQL. It's always nicer to put it on your SQL server since that is (should be) backed up regularly and maintained.

    Once you have WSUS installed you just point SCCMs SUP role at the installation and it takes over the rest.
