  2. There are two requirements:
    [a] The workstation must be a member of the domain housing the WSUS
    Server, or the member of a domain with a domain trust to the domain housing
    the WSUS Server.
    The user must be a member of the WSUS Administrators group on the
    WSUS Server.

    There is no requirement for a WSUS Administrator to be a member of the
    Domain Admins group.
