Software Update Point on a Secondary Site
The client computers assigned to secondary sites will automatically be configured to use the software update point at the parent site until an active software update point site system is configured for the secondary site. Creating an active software update point at the secondary site is recommended when there is limited network bandwidth from client computers to the software update point site system running WSUS or when the number of client computers connecting to the software update point is approaching capacity. Internet-based software update points are not supported on secondary sites.
|Generally, if you have decided that a proxy management point is necessary at the secondary site, you might want to consider an active software update point at the site as well.|
After the active software update point is successfully installed and configured on the secondary site, the Group Policy is updated on client computers and they will start using the new software update point.
