Re: Local Windows Update?

If you've got 1500 boxes out there, you don't want to manually be updating them. Are you in a normal domain model? 
WIN2K server/AD offers a service that is called something like Intelimirror, that will push out updates. There is also 
Novells Zenworks (we use that for 250 clients). Zen doesn't require a Netware box, and is reasonably priced.

Hello all,

I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to redirect a client "Windows
Update" to a local server? I am not using Active Directory and am trying to
figure out how to keep 1500+ Win2000 Pro clients current with the latest
patches (without using the M$ update site).

Any info or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks - Stephen G.
