Forefront Topology RRS feed

  • Question




    I have a client that wants to implement Forefront Client Security for workstations.  The user base is under 1000.  WSUS and SQL already exist on 64 Bit platforms on separate servers.


    Are there any supported topologies we can implement without having to introduce another SQL server?

  • Hi Jack

    You can use existing SQL and WSUS deployments at a customer site, but unfortunately, FCS v1 does not support x64 for the server roles

  • Thanks Chris.


    So I would have to re-deploy SQL & WSUS in 32 bit in order to deploy?

  •  If the client base is going to stay under 1000, you might be able to get away with a single server that handles all the roles (32bit). Forefront does not support SQL in 64 bit for the backend.
