Where do I put my WSUS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    A little help needed over here.

    Consider the following scenario:

    Small envrionment with 70 clients. 4 2012R2 servers: DC, Ex2013, SPF2013, SQL2014.

    Now on which of those 4 servers should I put WSUS on ? Dedicated is not an option. And is SQL2014 supported for WSUS database?

    Thanks in advance.

  • for 70 clients I wouldn't even use up your SQL resources. let WSUS install using the free windows internal database option which is good for several hundred clients. you can do that on any server, on your sql server if you wish. I would stay away from the DC and exchange. maybe your sharepoint server is ok too
