Hello everybody,

I have a small simple question; Can I install WSUS on Sever 2003 without service pack 1? I mean I didn't install the SP1 on my 2003server for some reason! Now I'm wondering if the WSUS would work with my server or not?

Your instant reply will be highly Appreciated!


Thanks & warm regards:

Hi Ihab N. Z

I'm not 100% sure, but I've got the system specs which are needed for WSUS to run below. That would show me that it should easily be able to run...

The minimum spec for a WSUS server should be;
  • 1Ghz CPU or better
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Sufficient Hard drive capacity for all the downloads, recommended specs follow
  • A minimum of 6 GB free space is required for the volume where WSUS stores content; 30 GB is recommended.
  • A minimum of 2 GB free space is required on the volume where WSUS Setup installs Windows SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (WMSDE).
  • 100 Mbit network connection to the server.
  • The server install required is not standard, see the additional requirements below.
Additional Requirements
To run WSUS your server will also need;
  • .Net framework 1.1
  • BITS 2.0
  • Internet Explorer 6 with SP1
  • IIS 5 or 6

Hello D-Trojanator,

Thanks a lot for those informations:). In fact I've read all of this before but I couldn't find anything talks about the WSUS working on server2003 without SP1!!!!

Thanks again

I've spent a bit of time looking and i haven't seen of a case where 2003 has rejected WSUS without SP1. I'm confident that it's not a requirement of the program; it should always be able to run on an un pacthed system.
Why not give it a try and see if it does work? If it doesn't can you not just remove it?
