Hello and thanks for looking and possible helping I have a Win Server 2003 R2 Service pack 2 Running WSUS 3.1.6001.65 My Active Directory is on a Win Server 2003 R2 service Pack 2 64 bit My issue is I implemented the Wsus server and the IT Director wants to be able to log into a computer with an administrators account and be able to update from Microsoft directly. Currently My AD has the GPO set on the computer OU and the Domain Admins are in another OU. So where if possible do I set the GPO to allow the Admin to override the policy set on the computer to allow access to Microsoft update site. Thank you all for your time

    thank you for your thoughts but not quite what were looking for what we need is a way for this to be done without moving computers around within active directory ie: just set it up so the computer runs normal untill an admin logs in, then when the admin loges out it reverts back to Wsus ???
