Re: Windows SUS Question

I have used SUS, and I am thinking that it is not
domain oriented.  You could use the Registry settings
that are in Deployment guide
(http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/sus/susdeployment.mspx)
in order to point the Servers to the SUS box.  We did
more than a few boxes that way.  Also, I would make
sure that all the servers don't reboot all at once.  I
attached a sample .reg that I renamed so that it
passes through most virus filters.  It has been some
time since I looked at it but I think that these
settings will reboot the clients automatically.

Regards,
Chris

Hi everyone,

My question regarding SUS is dealing with security
permissions.  Lets say 20 servers are part of a work
group; is their still a way to use SUS under the
context of the local system account or something
similar to be able to centrally deploy patches in a
de-centralizied network environment.  I have a
workgroup that needs to have patches deployed and I
would prefer to use something like SUS which is
central as opposed to something like Hfnetcheck pro.

Thanks in advance,

Leon
