Windows 2016 WSUS Server as VM?

Post by JustSomeGeek » 2018/05/21 09:33:48

Has anybody else done this?

We live in a rural location, and Windows Updates on all the clients are killing the bandwidth. So i'd like to have a WSUS server just to download and distribute updates to the Win machines. I'm thinking a headless Core 2016 installation as a VM on the CentOS Server is the best way to go. But not too sure how to go about it.

Install an additional dedicated NIC?
Can I use Cloudmin to install/Manage the VM? Would it conflict with Webmin?

Any other words of advice?

Thanks!
