Creating a Windows Server Update on a LAN Network with WSUS

Creating a Windows Server Update on a LAN Network with WSUS

Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) is a feature of Windows Server to manage the distribution of updates released by Microsoft Update to computers on your network. WSUS will be very useful if you have to manage many computers. Updates from Microsoft products can be hundreds of Megabytes in size, and can even reach a size of over one Gigabyte. If the number of computers in the network is large, it is certainly very inefficient if each computer has to download to Microsoft. Because this will burden internet usage and require a long download time. By creating a Server that serves an update, a direct update to Microsoft is only performed by one Server computer. Meanwhile, computers in other networks will download updates to the server. In this scenario, the update process from the computer does not require internet access because it uses a local network (LAN) and, of course, the download speed is also very fast. This article will use Windows Server 2019 as an example and you can also use this method on Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2. Both 2016 and Windows Server 2022.
