I have a handful of client systems that for one reason or another will not inherit my GPO's.
How can I manually point them at the WSUS server ?

check out the WSUS settings and compare to the registry settings they touch.....you can then manually change them per machine

Howdee Jay,

Where can I finf the GPO to set the server client is looking for to get updates.
Is set to server:port and I'd like to change it to servername.domain.local:port, hoping that remote site client computers will be able to access. Is this the correct way to do this,
How is Sydney?
