Dear Experts,

Only new one or two servers are having internet connection. rest don't have. even most of the clients they don't have internet connection. I want to update windows for all the servers & also for all the clients which don't have internet connection.

So all of the servers and clients have a network connection, but not all have internet access, correct? If they're all on the network, you can use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to deploy updates to your computers:

Hi,

Where do I need to configure this WSUS. Is it in Domain Server or in any other server. Will it update all the different versions of windows i.e. Windows 8 , Windows &  Xp.

Regards,

Here's info on how to install WSUS on Server 2012:

Another guide:

It can be installed on any server in your domain, as long as it has internet access.

And yes, it will support all versions of Windows that are currently getting updates, from XP through Windows 8. When a new version of Windows is released, WSUS will be updated to support that version as well.

If MS sites are not opening in a web browser either, that's something else you have to figure out. Did adding MS to trusted sites allow opening MS sites? Are there firewall/proxy settings preventing the domain server from connecting?


Here's another possible solution for connecting WSUS to Microsoft's servers:
