Queation about WSUS Content Location Selection

Lorin Davis 21 Reputation points


Currently our SCCM infra is a standalone Primary site server with one Software Update Point. We are installing a new SUP on a remote site system server. So the new SUP will be a downstream to the SUP on the Primary site server. While installing WSUS role, the content location should be the local path of the new server where SUP will be installed Or should we browse for the upstream server's WSUS content location ?

Thank you!

    Hi LorinDavis-2849,

    Thanks for your posting on Q&A.

    In my opinion, it is ok no matter to place the content location in the local server or a remote upstream server. In theory, it's all right. We could choose according to our environment.
