no proxy but pc still keeps settings from wsus gpo even now it is not in domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • the situation

    I deployed a new image the computer was not a domain member. Before connecting to domain I connected the machine to

    dedicated Internet connection (no corporate proxy) for making full updated from Microsoft site. Because I want to capture it back for future domain deployments and have maximum updates to date in the image.

    Update failed. Checked Direct Access (NO PROXY). Refreshed Software Updates folder.

    Windows update always showed the name of previous proxy server with the error. Local GPO were not configured.

    Found one entry with the name of proxy in the registry. Tried different things. still not works. No name in Windows update log but deffinetely Windows Update agent still keeps some settings from previous GPO.

    Before I wipe this thing, please

    see the last WindowsUpdate. May be there is a solution...

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Is this image used to be a WSUS client? According to the logs, the client seems to try to connect a WSUS server.

    To remove the WSUS client setting, we have two options:

    1. Set HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU\UseWUServer to 0.
    2. Delete entire HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\

    Note: Serious problems might occur if we modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, we can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Best Regards.

  • Steven, thanks for the tip. It helped!

    The machine was not in domain but was deployed from MDT and in the task sequence Update from WSUS was enabled.
