    You set this up via a GPO on your domain. Here you can set the SUS server and the download time\policy.

      Hi sudeeps,

      You didn't specify if your clients are in AD enviroment or not. If not, you can still use a .reg file to instruct the clients to download MS updates from local SUS or WSUS server.

      Here's the content of the registry key:

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate]
      "WUServer"="http://192.168.192.168/"
      "WUStatusServer"="http://http://192.168.192.168/"

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
      "RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:00000004
      "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
      "NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
      "AUOptions"=dword:00000004
      "ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
      "ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000013
      "UseWUServer"=dword:00000001


      ScheduledInstallTime uses military time and in hex value so you may want to edit it accordingly. In my case, client will isntall the update @ 7 P.M.


      If you are in AD, the settings are in GPO > Computer Configurations > Administrative Templates > Windows Update

      Hope that will help you. Please let me know if you need additional information.

      Regards,
      Teamwork

        Hi,

        SUS does not support ServicePack deployment. Only hotfixes and just for OS.
        Butt you have WSUS that is not so limitated.
        See this link:

        Here you have SUS installation Process

          Hi windux,

          SUS does not support ServicePack deployment. Only hotfixes and just for OS
          Did you mean service packs and patches for Microsoft Office products? To my understanding, SUS is able to deploy Service Pack 2 to Windows XP as well.
