    Workgroup PC on WSUS

    Quick question before I go head first into a google lake....

    Got WSUS 3 setup and working well for our domain PCs / Laptops etc.
    Got a workgroup PC I want to update on it.....
    With the old SUS you just installed the relevant service pointing it to the server - is it the same with WSUS ? If so - where is the service exe you need to install and config...?

    Re: Workgroup PC on WSUS

    could this not be done by just setting the local group policy on the workgroup pc to point to the internal wsus server?

    Good thinking - I was about to get all dirty with the registry as I found this:

    Just to add to Nij.UKs comment really

    In GPMC go to Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components / Windows Updates

    Alter settings to match your servers....etc
