    WSUS - Downstream / Replica / Clients pulling from local server andnot remote question.

    I will be installing WSUS on our network for the first time, i want one master WSUS server that will download all the updates and will distribute those updates to other connected servers. I want to know if that will be possible, if yes then how and if not then is there any alternate workaround to achieve what i have mentioned???

    You wont be able to do that, you will have to configure each client to connect to the appropriate server. If you ant then you can put the clients in separate OUs or you can have multiple GPOs on a single OU. You can use group policy security filtering for selecting the appropriate server. You can also set up your DNS so that a single alias can point to the appropriate server but then it will depend on details of your DNS service. Other alternate solution is to create a local hosts entry on each client where you will have to change the configuration on each client in case there might be a needed for changing server IP address.
