SCCM 2012 SP1 with remote WSUS on Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am rebuilding my SCCM 2012 lab on Server 2012 R2 x64 OS now.

    I have 1 primary site, remote SQL server 2012, and remote WSUS server.

    Is the WSUS console still required on my primary site running server 2012? If so are the below the correct steps to get this working?

    Install Console on primary server:

    Go to Server Manager à Add Roles and features, Navigate to the features section.

    Remote Server Manager tools

    >Role Administration Tools

                    --Select Windows Server Update Services Tools Only

    Are there any post hotfixes to install?

    Intalling WSUS full version on remote server:

    Go to Server Manager à Add Roles and features, Server Roles section.

    Windows Server Update Services

    Do I need to select this as well on the remote wsus server? >Role Administration Tools -Select Windows Server Update Services Tools Only

    Since my SQL server is on a remote server do I select the below only?

    Are there any post hotfixes to install?

  • Hi,

    Yes it is still required to install the WSUS admin Console on your Primary site server, You will the the WSUS admin console installed when you add the service in the remote server no need to select the admin tools as well.

  • Hi,

    One Part of the question is already answered. The second part is: If you want to use a remote SQL Server you need to select exactly what you selected in your screenshot.

  • No, that's a good reason to separate it out and is why I asked. For that though, I would deploy at least two sites systems hosting all three roles to provide HA.

  • Why are you using a remote WSUS instance?

  • The remote server host my DP and MP as well. I have about 25,000 clients. Is it recommended to put it on the SCCM primary server?
