• Question

  • Is it possible to install WSUS on WHS?  Is this going to be a feature in a future release to allow a single point of download for windows updates as well as managing updates on the clients from the WHS console?

    For various reasons, Microsoft has no intention of providing WSUS on WHS. So the official answer would probably be "no". It's possible that you can get it to work, of course. It's also possible that Microsoft will decide to remove the ability to do so from WHS. So I wouldn't rely on it.

    And personally, I wouldn't do it. A computer tied to WSUS is unable to update through Windows Update, if I recall correctly. So if your WHS crashes, you've got a problem. Windows Update is working fine for me, and I don't see a need to fix something that isn't broken.
