Setting up Single server FCS deployment RRS feed

  • Question


  • Hi All,

    I'm having difficulties in installing FFS Client edition in a single server environment here's the configuration of my server:

    Windows Server 2003 Std R2 SP2
    SQL Server 2005 Std SP2

    during the initial setup, i select all of the server role and then specifying the same machine for the database setup.

    i also created DOMAIN\FCSAdmin domain username to control the DAS role.

    this server also runs WSUS on port 8530

    any idea would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks.

  • If you are using WSUS 3.0+ do not install the Distribution server component as it is not required.  The Distribution component is specifically for WSUS 2.0 installs that did not have the ability to sync more frequently then 1x per day.  Just go into WSUS 3.0 and set it to sync every hour.

  • Kurt,

    thanks for the reply.

    the server that I'm going to install FCS, already got WSUS 3.0 SP1 server installation.

    Cheers.
