Hello,

We could point the hyper-v server to the WSUS server by registry. Here is a related link for your reference:

Note that this is a link not come from Microsoft.

Thanks for your time.

I know that non-domain computers must be configured using reg files, I have already these files.
But how to apply this reg file on hyper-v server core without GUI?

Please run the following command to add the reg file:

 regedit.exe /S yourfile.reg

First of all, make sure you can remotely manage the hyper-v server from another machine. Once you have this set up, you can use the MMC and add the Certificates snap-in for the Hyper-v server object. You can then import the CA certificate to the trusted root certificates store.

Oddly enough, I came here in my search for this exact same answer, and out of all the different blogs, forums, etc... discussing it, none have mentioned this method. It was while doing the searching that it dawned on me that you can use MMC to access a remote system's certificate stores.
