Software Update Point Installation We will describe how to install SCCM Current Branch Software Update Point (SUP).
The SUP integrates with Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to provide software updates to Configuration Manager clients.
This is not a mandatory Site System but your need to install a SUP if you’re planning to use SCCM as your patch management platform.
SITE SYSTEM ROLE PLACEMENT IN HIERARCHY
This Site System is a site-wide option. It’s supported to install this role on a Central Administration Site, child Primary Site, stand-alone Primary Site and Secondary Site.
When your hierarchy contains a Central Administration Site, install a Software Update Point and synchronizes with Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) before you install a SUP at any child’s Primary Site.
Consider installing a SUP in Secondary Site when data transfer across the network is slow.
Remote WSUS Warning
The WSUS Administration Console is required on the Configuration Manager site server when the software update point is on a remote site system server and WSUS is not already installed on the site server. The WSUS version on the site server must be the same as the WSUS version running on the software update points.
When using WSUS 3.0 (on server 2008, it was possible to install the console only). This has changed with 2012 and 2016. One way to do it is to add the Windows Software Update Services role and deselecting Database and WID Database. The problem is that will still cause some trouble with the post-install task.
The recommended way to do it :
- Start PowerShell Console (as Administrator)
- Run : Install-WindowsFeature -Name UpdateServices-Ui
This will install the console only and not run a post-install task.
Perform the following on the server that will host the SUP role.
- Open Server Manager / Add Roles and Features
- Select the Windows Server Update Services Role, click Next
