Is there a way or area I can look on a computer to find the WSUS computer? I need to disable it as the updates have maxed out a HD here and I am trying to find it. An existing network that was setup before I worked here and my boss wants to have that server disabled on the computer I am at as it takes up all the HD space when it does it's update.

You help is needed and appreciated.


Thank You,
Mathew


PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN

One PC on a network is having problems so you want to disable the WSUS server? I mean, if you found it via GPO that means you know the NETBIOS name of the server. Simply open a CMD prompt on your server and type "net stop wsusservice" - but you can also modify your settings so the updates are not stored locally (if HD space is an issue), cleanup old updates, or add more HD space to your server. I wouldn't think you'd ever want to disable that functionality unless you are just going to redirect everything to the Microsoft Update website.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
