I want to implement WSUS in a multi-site environment, however I'm not sure if I should use MID or SQL server.
I'll set up one WSUS server at HQ to sync with Microsoft and act as an upstream server (HQ has over 300 Windows systems), as well as 3 WSUS servers in branch offices (one office, one WSUS, fewer than one hundred servers).
