    Migrating to WSUS

    .. from sus on a standalone 2000 server to our 2003 web server. the 2003 server host about sixty development sites and a half dozen production sites. P4 2.4Ghz 768MB RAM. wsus load would be for about sixty-five xp boxes and about four 2000/2003 servers.

    question: is the wsus load going to impact our iis server environment much?

    My bad. I thought the thread title read "Migrating to WUSS" and I was worried that you might be turning into a fulltime MTB'er.



















    j/k all you knobby-tire addicts!

    i actually run WSUS in my office. I don't run it on an IIS enviroment, do you use any nonstandard ports for your IIS implimentation? I installed in on a spare Domain controller which obviously has NO IIS installed on it. It uses a nonstandard port

    Its possible. I find wsus requires quite a bit of memory. I use it on a virtual server and the sweet spot for it to run at a decent pace was 512megs ram, I did try many variations less than thatm, and it sucked. Any higher was noticibly smoother but not so much so that it was worth the loss in performance for my other vhds. Without that dedicated ram it ran like a dying dog.

    I guess in the end it depends on how ram intensive your other iis apps are. Personally I would spend the money on a bit more ram to offset the potential drain.

    For my setup anyways. I have approx 90 pcs including 8 servers on this wsus. I have another wsus in another part of the MAN as it is a couple hundred K away.

    The following are the baseline installation requirements for installations that use the default options. You can find hardware and software requirements for other installations in the “Deploying Microsoft Windows Server Update Services” white paper.

    Hardware recommendations for a server with up to 500 clients are as follows:

    • 1 gigahertz (GHz) processor

    • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM
    Those are the minimum and microsoft is definately cutting it close for performance.

    .mur. glad you got goin' w. 512MB, though .... wish i could avoid another server license for a standalone machine and really this thing is only going to utilized, what, tuesday for the downloads and then a few hours on wednesday for the "push" ... seems a waste to build a new machine for this ... oh, well. i really like the management of patches that it offers ... so be it.

    WSUS does suck RAM, and also make sure that all the hosts can see the box so they can slurp patches from it.

    Can you at least get the server to 1 gig, if not 2-4 gigs? It will make life a lot easier some patch time.
