Now this is a really handy tip from the Lazy Admin: how to use WSUS without Active Directory. You might be thinking to your self “why would i want to?” Well, i have the answer: Windows Media Center Edition 2005. it wont join a domain (without a hack) and it reduices the functionallity of the system when it is on a domain (no extender support, and you have to log in, which can be a pain with a remote control, and you cant remember where you left the keybaord). So, getting it to talk to your WSUS server without it joining the AD makes life a lot easer! i will be trying this eventually!
