Thursday, September 11, 2008 11:16 PMIs AD required to use WSUS? This is very important to me, as I want to use a WSUS server, but the majority of the computers being updated are not in any Domain.
Also, can you push customer fixes out to computers, or only MS updates with WSUS? We have a lot of proprietary software that we need to update from time to time, and using WSUS to update this would be optimal, but not required.

AD is not required for WSUS installation and operation, for the clients is not in the domain, you can modify the registry to specify the WSUS server.
For deploying custom update, I'd like to suggest you use System Center Configurations Manager 2007(SCCM) with System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP), see the article below:

Thursday, December 11, 2008 5:17 PMI have a similar issue, but the majority of my computers are in AD, there are a few that are not part of the domain that I would like to get updates from my WSUS server. Is there an easy way to point these machines to the WSUS server?
