The documentation states that you can manually add the registry keys
necessary if you are in non active directory environment

:
:SUS uses win2k policy installation. Therefore, the patches are applied
:by the local service account.
:
:You set up an MS policy (policy file is supplied with SUS) which tells
:the machines where to get the update list from and when to apply.
:
:This does imply, of course that all machines are in a Domain and not a
:workgroup.

:Subject: 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
