How can you restrict access to WSUS for one administrator that is a domain admin?

I need to restrict access to WSUS on a utility server so not all admins can open WSUS and release updates how can I do this?

Controlling multiple admins can only be done using auditing... but as admins can change auditing options, too, this gets difficult. You would have to have an eye on the auditing logs (which also log if auditing options have been changed and by whom and if auditing logs were deleted and by whom), this is not really acceptable as a solution over time. So I second dstewartjr.

MaryClif , you kind of misunderstand how this forum works. You got the best possible answer, regardless if you like that result or not. Saying "no help was available" is not correct, we helped to make you realize it cannot be done. Or at least, how hard it would be to partly do it.
So if you decide not to accept these answers it not only shows you didn't understand this, but it's also a little unthankful in my opinion.

You are correct I am new to this forum and need to figure out what it is about and how to move around within it.  Not unthankful just new assumptions should never be made.
"assumptions should never be made" - correct. Sorry!

I Object, the answer "No you cant do that" is an acceptable answer.
