Configuration Manager and WSUS announcements!

Today we posted guidance on using an existing WSUS server from an Configuration Manager deployment for FCS definition distribution. The complete guidance, Deploying FCS definition updates with a shared System Center Configuration Manager WSUS infrastructure (

), can be read on TechNet.


Refer to Supported configurations for using WSUS to distribute Forefront Client Security Definition updates within System Center Configuration Manager 2007 ( for supported FCS and Configuration Manager shared configurations.

Also, we are announcing support for definition distribution via WSUS 3.0 installed on an x64-based platform. To support this configuration, the FCS distribution component must not be installed on the x64-based WSUS 3.0 server, as WSUS 3.0 does not require the installation of the FCS distribution component. Existing FCS documentation will be updated accordingly.
