Installing Octopus Deploy on a WSUS server

Hi All,

We have a need to consolidate services onto a single server so we want to add the WSUS role to our existing Octopus Deploy server.

Does anyone have any experience in this area ie, issues, pitfalls, helpful tips?

Or should this work fine?



For info, I managed to install the WSUS role on our Octopus server with one caveat:

When you step through the WSUS 3.0 SP2 install wizard (it pops up during the Add Role wizard routine) and you get to the Web Site Selection screen you must select the Create a Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 Web site. option NOT the Use the IIS Default Web site (recommended) website, otherwise the WSUS install never completes successfully and your server Event log ends up full of errors about the MMC snap-in not being able to connect to the WSUS website.


Glad to hear it came together, thanks for posting the results!
