I am deploying a disconnected WSUS server on a network that doesn't have any internet connection. I have followed Microsoft direction from the start, beginning at creating a WSUS server on a connected network, downloading updates, approving the ones I needed and exporting the .cab and .log files along with copying all the updates onto the disconnected server. The problem that I am having is that I cannot get any clients to connect to the WSUS server automatically, even logged in as administrator on the client.
Also, if I am logged in as administrator on a client machine, i can do wuauclt.exe /detectnow, it will find the wsus and start downloading updates, otherwise it will not look for it by itself. If I log in as a regular user without admin right, it will not even do anything with the command above, the event log will say no permission to do so. Are there any ways around any of these obstacles?
