is there any issue with removing the windows server update services from the sbs 2008 add/remove (program features)? will it break anything else in the process like exchange or IIS etc, any updates or services packs that could cause an issue? thanks.

I can't see why it would be an issue, just remember to remove the Group Policy properties that redirect everyones updates to the SBS 2008 machine, otherwise nobody will receive any updates.

k thanks will do, i can deal with that later, i was just wondering if for some strange reason things like outlook web access or remote web workplace might stop working. i would be shocked if something like exchange would not function correctly without wsus being present. – dasko Oct 24 '11 at 2:57
