For various reasons I have removed WSUS and want my client PCs to get their updates from MS.
I have done the following:
1. Uninstalled WSUS through Programs & Features
2. Modified the local group policy using GPEdit: Computer Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Windows Updates - Specify intranet Microsoft update service location and set it to disabled. I also set "Configure Automatic Updates" to Enabled.
3. In the registry I removed the 2 keys that pointed to the WSUS server in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
After all that I did a GPUpdate /Force and that succeeded but when I run Windows Update on the server, it is still saying that Updates are managed by the Administrator and not going to Microsoft by default?
What am I missing?
