I have a Windows 2012 server that is running SQL and therefore doesn't have any internet connectivity at all (only access to the domain network). I have it configured to receive updates via a WSUS server on our local network. I am getting numerous warnings in the event log for this server under the source of DeviceSetupManager with the following details:
- A connection to the Windows Update service could not be established. (ID: 200)
- The Network List Manager reports no connectivity to the internet. (ID: 202)
Can I simply disable the "Device Setup Manager" in services to prevent these warnings? I worry because in the description for this service it states "If this service is disabled, devices may be configured with outdated software, and may not work correctly". Has anyone else disabled this service and if so, did you encounter any issues? Or if I should keep this service enabled, is there some configuration I am missing for a computer not connected to the internet? FYI, normal Windows Updates on this server work as expected by checking our WSUS server.
