We have installed a SUS Server working fine in a specific Domain. We have some clients in another Domain. Is there any choice to modify the Windows Update URL without using AD policies?
Changing Manually the Key in the registry? Any tool?

Thanks in advance.

Without group (or system) policies, you need to edit the registry manually or with a script.
The necessary settings can be found here:

SUS deployment white paper describes different deployment scenarios including workgroup environment(your case as you trying to setup automatic updates for computers from defferent domain)
You may also wish to create another SS in target domain and configure it to obtain updates as well as list of approved updates from your main SUS server. SUS server does not use much resources so you should be able to install it on one of servers in target domain.

Ow, just missed obvious thing:
You can use AD policies on target domain to put that domain computers to SUS server in your domain.

Glad to help :)
Can I ask you a question, why "C" grade? Taking in account you give C all your questions - is it something of principle?

If you are not sure about grades to give you might want to read this EE help topic:
