MDT2013 Update1 & WSUS on same Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there experts,

    I'm currently planing a MDT 2013 Setup for generating my Reference Images. I'm currently using ConfigMgr 2012 R2 SP1 for generating the Reference Images, but because of different Problems especially with Windows 7 (Insane Long Task-Sequence runtime, Task-Sequence Breaking Updates, etc.) i finally want to switch to MDT 2013 Update 1 for creating my reference Images. The generated WIM Files will then be deployed with ConfigMgr.

    My question is about where to place the dedicated WSUS for MDT 2013. As i read, i can't use the existing WSUS that is integrated in ConfigMgr. Does something speak against placing the WSUS, which will only be used by MDT, with a local WID Database on the MDT Server itself?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I see no issue doing the WSUS server locally.

    Logs are very important. If you are unsure how to post logs or where to find them then reference Also if you have made customizations please mention them when asking for help.

  • MDT in its most base form is just a file share that hosts some OS images, apps and scripts. Theres no reason (except for performance issues) why it can't be co-hosted with WSUS or pretty much any other server role you could think of.

    Go for it.
