I was just wondering there if there is anything/setup to make a Samba
3/4 PDC to fetch MS Windows Updates from the Microsoft website and
push it to the clients. Some thing Like WSUS?

If it is not already th ere is there any plans to add this
functionality to Samba?

I am wondering how updates are done on Windows Machines under a Samba domain.
The data transfer multiplies with the no. of clients right?

May be one way is to put a caching server like Squid on the firewall
and allow the cache to serve the requested file.

Is there any other/better way than this?

Thankyou so much

Kind Regards
