Hi, does anyone know what is the difference between WSUS server and the cache content of Microsoft Windows Update in ISA 2004? Currently my organization already has ISA 2004 and I don't want to duplicate update of each machine. So could i used the feature cache content of Microsoft Windows Update in ISA 2004 instead of deploy WSUS?

Thank,

Basically, if you’re using ISA BITS caching feature, it helps lessen the impact on your network’s bandwidth for BITS enabled (Windows update and SUS) client requests by caching the content. That way you don’t have every BITS enabled machine on your network hitting the Internet downloading the same content; it just retrieves it from the cache and save bandwidth.  If you’re using WSUS, you can disable the feature, your call.

To answer your question; No I wouldn’t, BITS caching has nothing to do with patch management.
