What is passive SUP for?


Long time I haven’t blogged sorry I was busy with some re-allocation to new place..etc

 

A nice discussion I have involved in about the benefit of having a passive SUP in the SCCM hierarchy, well NOTHING.

 

you do need to create a non active SUP to install the active Internet-based SUP (selected and configured in the Software Update Point Component Properties) and when creating an NLB for the active SUP.  The non active SUP would be installed on each server in the NLB and then the active SUP would be configured as the NLB.

 

Other than this, you cannot use it for reporting. I thought that clients in branch sites can report to the local WSUS and this info will be replicated to the parent WSUS somehow, well this is wrong. So if you will not deploy a WSUS you don’t need passive SUPs.

Mahmoud.
