  • Hi Windows.Geek,

    Then you need a WSUS server.

    To deploy a WSUS server, there are some tips:

    1. Recommended to install the WSUS server on server 2012 or later. When we install the WSUS server, we may use WID(windows internal database) or external SQL server, WID is enough if you do not have specific requirements.

    2. WSUS server owns SUSDB(WID or SQL database) and Content folder, SUSDB stores update metadata, Content folder stores update files. Recommended to store Content folder locally, otherwise, there may be permission issues. If you want to limit the Content folder's size, then you may check "Do not store update files locally" in WSUS GUI>options>Update Files and Languages.

    3.It's not recommended to deploy "Drivers" in "Products and Classifications" for clients, since there are a lot of updates for drivers, and we only need a few of them, then, it may occupy a lot of space.

    4. For WSUS general maintenance, it's recommended to run Server Cleanup Wizard and reindex WSUS database monthly.

    So, you may keep the above tips in mind, then install WSUS role and configure WSUS clients with instructions online (You may find related links here and there.). When you meet specific issue in deploying WSUS, you may post the specific question on WSUS forum.

    Best Regards,
