    Yes - WSUS will configure this by default!

    No, on Installation of WSUS on a server it will automatically deal with the updating source, pointing the server at itself for updates.

    My wsus server is up and running with all computers on and updating, but attemped an update on the wsus server itself from windows update and all updates failed, so that's when I wondered if it updates from itself - if that makes sense!
