Can you update offline WSUS server using Windows Update Catalog?

  1. No one seems to be able to answer this one for me. I'm in a situation in
    which I have an offline network that can not be connected to the internet.
    (not even for a brief time for updating purposes).
    I'd like to download patches via Windows Update Catalog and import them to
    my WSUS server on my network.

    Could anyone tell me if this is possible?

    Any gurus out there who can answer this one?

    Thanks.

  2. No, it isn't.

    The only way to operate an offline WSUS server is to migrate the content and
    metadata from an online WSUS server. The procedure is fully documented.
