Auto-update in Non-AD Environment

By jdlp ·
Our network is Non-Active Directory, at present we are trying to make our W2K system run their auto updates from a local file server rather than from MS, we know that it's a registry fix to do this, & have the details for XP, but we can't get W2K to work!!

Any ideas?

One thing to keep in mind is SUS will only work with Windows 2000 SP3 and Windows XP SP1 or better. That may be why the registry locations are not appearing.

You will need to use a script to make registry changes on all the 2K/XP clients that you want to update with SUS, since you're not running Active Directory (where you could use a GPO to set it). The SUS guide from Microsoft outlines all of the registry keys and values you will need to make this work.

I have a script (it a .vbs script) that sets up clients, if you're interested, email me and I can send it to you (after you award the points, of course ;o) ).

humm would have been nice to know you currently use SUS and that you were having problems with W2K workstation getting the updates from the local server and that "possibly" you haven't applied ALL the service packs and hotfixes to your workstations. Would have made it simpler for all who view your questions to give a decent suggestion.
