Updating xp home to xp pro
Family Id=A7AA96E4-6E41-4F54-972C-AE66A4E4BF6C&displaylang=en Because Windows XP SP2 is a relatively large update (approximately 270 MB), SUS administrators need to consider the impact on internal network traffic and on the machine on which the SUS server is running.For the vast majority of SUS implementations, server and network load will not be a concern and SUS administrators will not have to take mitigation actions described below, although it is recommended that the SUS administrator monitor the performance and load on the SUS server when the update is initially approved.For example, if the maximum bandwidth you want used on the SUS server (or the network overall) to deploy Windows XP SP2 using SUS is 100 Mbps and there are 5000 Windows XP systems on the network, setting the maximum bandwidth usage to 20 Kbps on each client system will limit overall network bandwidth to 100 Mbps.Pros: Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) contains major security improvements designed to provide better protection against hackers, viruses, and worms, and Microsoft strongly recommends that customers update their Windows XP machines with SP2 as soon as possible.
This option uses the BITS 2.0 maximum bandwidth usage parameter to control the amount of bandwidth used by SUS clients when interacting with the SUS server.
These configuration options are available with IIS 5 as well as IIS 6.
The IIS server will allocate the maximum bandwidth usage specified equally across the concurrent connections specified.
It is also recommended that you plan your Windows XP SP2 deployment so it doesn’t overlap with the deployment of the monthly security updates from Microsoft (released on the 2nd Tuesday of each month) to eliminate the need to factor in the impact of the deployment of these updates on server load and therefore on the lengths of the approval windows for the Windows XP SP2 deployment.
The following are the pros and cons of using this technique: Pros: This option allows limiting the maximum bandwidth that may be used for SUS by setting the appropriate values for the maximum number of concurrent connections and the maximum bandwidth the IIS server allocates to servicing SUS requests.
