Consider the following scenario:

  • You use a Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server to deploy updates to Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based client computers.
  • The client computers are in a domain environment that has a disjoint namespace.
  • You enable Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) peer caching on the client computers.
  • You install updates on one client computer (client A).

In this scenario, the other client computers cannot install updates from client A.

Note: When this issue occurs, the other client computers install updates from the WSUS server.
