WSUS stands for “Windows Server Update Services”. If you are planning on deploying Windows Server Update Services, here are the system requirements that need to be considered:

  • 1.4 GHz or faster 64-bit processor
  • An additional 2 GB RAM is required above what is required by the server and all other services.
  • 10 GB free space
  • 100 Mbps network adapter
  • Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2008 – this is required for viewing reports.
  • Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 Runtime – this is required when you are using Windows Server 2016.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 – must be installed on the server where the WSUS server role will be installed.

Also, if you install roles or updates that will require a system restart after the installation, you need to restart the server before you enable the WSUS server role.
