"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi

According to Microsoft, you can install WSUS 3.0 into a network without Active Directory.
This is a nice little guide here, it also lists WSUS as usable in a workgroup scenario, which your Novell install would appear to be, as its not controlled by AD.

It's even easier if you have ZENworks - then you can push WSUS policies without having to have AD, by virtue of adding the WSUS ADM to your zen group policies.

MarkMichael,

Where is the guide you are referring to.  We don't use ZENworks and don't have active directory, so this would be ideal.  Thanks.
