Updating the WSUS Server manually with updates (LAB Environment)

Hello Experts,

  I am creating a lab environment to practice WSUS . Now , My Problem is I dont have internet connection to my LAB , Hence synchronization of Microsoft update with WSUS is impossible here.


  Is there any way that I can manually download the updates and put them in my WSUS server and distribute them,,

 I know I have an option to download the updates in one of the WSUS server and export it to a Media and then we can distribute it (For disconnected network). But problem here is, I dont have access to the WSUS server from where I can export the Updates to a media.

 Anyone have an resolution for this? Can I achieve this task?

 There is no way to do this without having an internet connection?


  Is it applicable to WSUS , As I see  the document is more towards the SCCM etc.

You need a WSUS server with internet to download/synch from to export the updates so that you can import them into your lab.

Yes it's applicable to WSUS
