I have a few questions about Windows Server Update services that are fairly vague within the MS documentation.
We have the domain server running as a vm on an esx server (not my idea and I'm not allowed to take the domain server offline) The domain server is running Windows Server 2003. Any more information needed let me know.
So here's my questions:
- Can the WSUS be on the same server as the domain or different?
- Can you manage updates for off site computers with server 2003 and XP?
Happy sysadmin day!
EDIT: 2 more question. So assuming I'm going to setup a separate server for this would y'all recommend adding it to the domain or would it be best to have it just have an admin password and keep it off the domain?
If I'm going to have remote clients access the server for updates would you recommend it be internal and have clients access it via VPN only? I'm mostly an Apple support and web developer so stuff like this is still VERY new to me
