RE: Windows SUS Question

In my testing, I was able to use the policy file to apply the SUS
configuration using Local Security Policy on an client system that had a
different workgroup name than the SUS server system (ie: no Domain
involved at all).  Automatic updates worked without problem or error
using this method.

I would guess that the SUS client configuration could also be applied
with a registry import.

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.

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
