Wsus updating non domain computers
The following table lists the complete remote managment requirements, in case your environment diverges from the defaults.
These requirements are in addition to the installation requirements for the Install the Failover Clustering feature and the Failover Clustering Tools and the general clustering requirements that are described in previous sections in this topic.
Combining CAU with other update methods can result in unplanned downtime or unpredictable results.
If Windows Update functionality is configured for Automatic Updates on one or more cluster nodes, ensure that Automatic Updates is not configured to automatically install updates.
The exact installation requirements for the Failover Clustering Tools depend on whether CAU coordinates updates as a clustered role on the failover cluster (by using self-updating mode) or from a remote computer.Required on all cluster nodes to run the following:- The Save-Cau Debug Trace cmdlet- Power Shell pre-update and post-update scripts during an Updating Run- Tests of cluster updating readiness using the Cluster-Aware Updating window or the Test-Cau Setup Windows Power Shell cmdlet Required on all cluster nodes to run the following:- The Save-Cau Debug Trace cmdlet- Power Shell pre-update and post-update scripts during an Updating Run- Tests of cluster updating readiness using the Cluster-Aware Updating window or the Test-Cau Setup Windows Power Shell cmdlet To allow automatic restarts after updates are applied (if the installation of an update requires a restart), if Windows Firewall or a non-Microsoft firewall is in use on the cluster nodes, a firewall rule must be enabled on each node that allows the following traffic: If Windows Firewall is used on the cluster nodes, you can do this by enabling the Remote Shutdown Windows Firewall rule group on each cluster node.When you use the Cluster-Aware Updating window to apply updates and to configure self-updating options, the Remote Shutdown Windows Firewall rule group is automatically enabled on each cluster node.The self-updating mode of CAU additionally requires the installation of the CAU clustered role on the failover cluster by using the CAU tools.The following table summarizes the CAU feature installation requirements for the two CAU updating modes.
