How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Keep updates only in WSUS

Allow Windows Updates to be managed through SCCM but allow users to pull the actual files from WSUS.

In smaller environments why must I download the updates on the WSUS server than have the update sync down to the SCCM server forcing me to put 60 gig worth of updates in 2 places. This should be an option.

    Tom, when used by ConfigMgr WSUS does not download updates content. At least, it should be. If it is then you have a mis-configuration somewhere along the line.

    That being said, ConfigMgr _will_ store the content twice by design. First in the source folder for your (update) deployment packages and then again in the content library. The later is single-instance-storage but it's at the file level so you aren't going to gain much, if anything, with updates.
