Gary (and everyone),
My experience has been in running SUS to my college at our University has been that if you specify the location of the SUS server is that if you deviate and specify something different at the server versus the client, it doesn't quite work well. Do you have AD? There's a .adm that you can plug into group policy that comes with the SUS install that can push that configuration off to any number of clients, which is how we do it. As additional SUS boxes come online, I'm planning on just reconfiguring through a GPO.

Can I configure different clients with different DNS names
to the same SUS server. They'll all resolve to the same
IP address initially.
I thought I'd heard of problems if the SUS configuration item
below didn't match the client configuration:
"Specify the name your clients use to locate this update server:"
If they have to match, anyone know why?
I'd like to do this so if we decide to deploy different
SUS servers for different populations later a client
reconfiguration won't be necessary.
For example, clients may have any of the following configured:
All resolving to the same IP address.
