Adding workgroup computer into WSUS server

Domain Computer can be added into WSUS console by using Group Policy. But how about workgroup computer !

You can add workgroup computer into WSUS console by using registry.
I have created two script to simplify your tasks.

1. File: wsus.bat

@echo off
net stop "wuauserv"
Echo importing wsus.reg
%windir%\regedit.exe /s c:\wsus.reg
echo wsus.reg imported successfully
net start "wuauserv"
echo forcing update detection
wuauclt /detectnow

Note: Stop the Windows Update Service, execute wsus.reg and start Windows Update Service. Perform manual detection by using the command wuauclt /detectnow

2. File:wsus.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



a) WUServer and WUStatusServer - specify your WSUS server using the following format http://wsus server name

b) Value: NoAutoUpdate
•0 - Enable Automatic Updates (Default)
•1 - Disable Automatic Updates

c) Value: AUOptions
•2 - Notify for download and notify for install
•3 - Auto download and notify for install
•4 - Auto download and schedule the install

d) Value: ScheduledInstallDay
•0 - Install every day
•1 to 7 - Install on specific day of the week from Sunday (1) to Saturday (7).

e) Value: ScheduledInstallTime
•0 to 23 - Install time of day in 24-hour format

f) UseWUServer - Enabled Automatic Update.

g) NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers -NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers is enabled which Specifies that to complete a scheduled installation, Automatic Updates will wait for the computer to be restarted by any user who is logged on, instead of causing the computer to restart automatically in 5 minutes to complete the installation.

Note: Copy both files into C:\ drive and run wsus.bat
