FCS 6 Servers - Distribution Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • HELLO,

    Is the distribution server the equivalent of the WSUS server?

    As all machines are already under WSUS if so I do not have to use this server.

    As the installation of the Distribution Server is asking to install WSUS 2.0 I think it is a dupliacte, isn't it?

    Thanks,

    Dom

  • Hi,

    The FCS distrubution role is only properly configured WSUS 2.0 which gives it the ability to sync once an hour and not once a day as it is before this update. So, you don't need to install the distribution server role if you have WSUS 3.0

  • Hi Dom,

    Thanks for the post.

    The Client Security distribution server component is primarily a WSUS 3.0 or WSUS 2.0 server, which means you don't need to add it.

    Thanks,
