RE: Windows SUS Question

Hi,

Msus is based in windows update model. In fact you have to reconfigure
windows update in the servers to connect to that msus server. You can do it
by using policies if the machines are in the AD or by configuring certain
registry keys manually. Once you have configured the clients, you need
"background intelligent transfer service" and "automatic updates" service to
be running on the machine.

The clients will connect then to the msus servers to download the updates,
no authentication is needed to stablish that connection.

Ricardo.

Asunto: Windows SUS Question


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
