  2. This is not a viable deployment option for WSUS. If a local content store is
    maintained on a WSUS server, the WSUS server must download the content and
    store it on a local drive.

    Note: Technically, there are methodologies for downloading and importing
    content from an alternate source into an existing WSUS server, but the
    actual content store must be on a drive local to the WSUS server. That
    requirement cannot be changed.

    For more information on how to import content from an alternate source into
    WSUS, see th section of the Deployment Guide on "Disconnected Networks".
