We have 2 domains and only 1 WSUS server.

Is there a way that I can add computers that are on a different domain to a WSUS Server?  

I would like to avoid having 2 WSUS servers if possible.


Thanks!

In the second domain (Domain B) just setup the GPO to point to your WSUS server in
Domain A

Then force GPO gpupdate /force on Domain B
Check the computers regisry to see if they are now pointing to the WSUS server in Domain A

Make sure you use FQDN in the GPO

As long as domain B computer can see ping or connect to domain A resources they will be able toget the WSUS updates from Domain A also.
