I recently took my WSUS server offline. In the mean time I want the clients to update from the internet until I get WSUS up again.
However, Windows Updates is tring to contact the old server and (obviously) failing to get new updates.
- I have updated the WSUS GPO to disabled.
- Checked DNS is resolving.
- Deleted WSUS GPOs.
- GPRESULT reports that policy is not being applied
- Run GPUPDATE /force
- No issues reported from DCDIAG
I delete the registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
But the keys return after a reboot.
What else can I try ?
