Background: I have a really slow internet connection (the highest download speed I've seen on it is 3.5Mbps, though I only pay for 3Mbps), and Windows 10 does updates all the freaking time. Like, so much. This obviously bogs down my connection regularly. I also have ~7 machines on my LAN that are updating on this basis. All-in-all, I'd say about 50% of my internet traffic is Windows Updates.
This brings me to my question: is it possible to setup a local server (I already have two local Hyper-V host servers) that can download and serve all these updates to my LAN PC's, so that the LAN PC's can use it, and it can download all these updates once instead of each LAN PC downloading it's own set of updates?
Both of these Hyper-V servers are Windows Server 2012 R2, though I can upgrade them easily if necessary.
Also, I'm willing to serve updates for any Windows OS on the local LAN, though obviously Windows 10 is the highest priority, but I have devices with all of the following versions:
- Windows 10
- Windows 8.1
- Windows 7
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Windows Phone 10 / Windows 10 Mobile
If any/all of these can be supported, that would be awesome.
Note: creating an active directory domain is not possible. Two of these PC's are laptops that are already members of other domains (work related) and cannot be modified as such.
