A previous admin had WSUS setup and used the local group policy on each machine to use the wsus server. we have removed the wsus server and are managing the windows patches with a 3rd party tool, but the local group policy is preventing the patches from deploying properly. Is there a way to put the local group policy back to 'not configured' without having to go and touch every PC to make those changes?
We do have AD, and within the Default Domain Policy it is set to 'not configured' for Windows updates, but that isn't reflecting on workstations

You can turn off local group policy processing. http://deployhappiness.com/playing-with-processing-group-policy-guide-for-link-manipulation/

You could also set the GP setting to disabled.

You can use group policy to remove the settings for WSUS.

how can we verify that the domain group policy that we have made the wsus changes to is being propagated to the local client and turned off the local group policy within the default domain group policy
