Manually update through WSUS Server?

tim.hurley
We have a WSUS 3.0 server here and I want to be able to manually run MS Update on a workstation and have it download directly from our WSUS server and NOT from microsofts update site. Anyone know if this is possible and if so, how would one accomplish this? I did read through the wsus 3.0 documentation but found nothing regarding this.

thanks

    What you need to do is move the Computer account to an OU where your Windows Update policy applies, then run GPUPDATE on your computer and in a few minutes it should display the yellow update shield in the system tray for updates ready to install...

    i figured as much, i thought there might be a more direct way of doing this but if this is the only solution that's fine.

    thanks

    Hi Tim,
    What you can also do to instantly get the updates from your internal WSUS server is log on to your client machine, start a command promt enter "wuauclt /detectnow" and press enter. After a few minutes you should see available updates or the yellow shield in your system tray. I hope this helps.

    Make a update.bat file:
    REM ---------------------------Start--------------------------------
    @echo off
    Echo This batch file will Force the Update Detection from the AU client:
    Echo 1. Stops the Automatic Updates Service (wuauserv)
    Echo 2. Deletes the LastWaitTimeout registry key (if it exists)
    Echo 3. Deletes the DetectionStartTime registry key (if it exists)
    Echo 4. Deletes the NextDetectionTime registry key (if it exists)
    Echo 5. Restart the Automatic Updates Service (wuauserv)
    Echo 6. Force the detection
    Pause
    @echo on
    net stop wuauserv
    REG DELETE "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v LastWaitTimeout /f
    REG DELETE "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v DetectionStartTime /f
    Reg Delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v NextDetectionTime /f
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt /detectnow
    @echo off
    Echo This AU client will now check for the Updates on the Local WSUS Server.
    Pause
    REM ------------------------------End-------------------------

    then when you want to manual update, double-click the update.bat
