We have 12 windows 2008 HPC Servers ( cluster server ) which totally isolated from internet . Some of the security reasons from client we are not allowed to connect our servers to the internet ( even in 1 server ) , but strictly recommended
to apply all patches periodically .
But the problem is as HPC edition it is very rare and hard to get patches periodically by offline . As per my knowledge for WSUS server we need connect minimum one server to the internet , and also Microsoft not providing such option
to download the patches instead of installing it like Redhat linux allow using " yum download only " utility . Here I need your help to find any way or method to fill this requirement ,
Also I am ready to subscribe with Microsoft if there is option to get offline patches from microsoft site .
>>> Is it possible to configure WSUS server in my laptop / workstation PC and download patches by online , then copy & load this data base in our servers manually
