Fix Offline WSUS Export Process
We need a better method for offline usage of WSUS. Today we need a two server WSUS installation to manage WSUS updates in an isolated offline environment. One server needs to be Internet facing, and the other ingests the exported updates after a long painful copy process is used. This entire process is error prone, and if a user accidently clicks SYNC, it destroys your existing offline WSUS install.
Currently no GPO's exist to prevent if from occurring and finding good process documentation is painfully difficult to find. Maintaining an offline WSUS server is an archaic process prone to numerous potential errors when copying files to import. Please work to improve and modernize this process to make it simple and efficient / less painful!
Even a well documented process to include well written PowerShell scripts would be a great improvement over what currently "doesn't exist" would be super!

+1 Also (for now) the command line wsusutil.exe appears to only use one CPU core meaning its slow on whatever box you run it on! Even that would help...
