Automate Windows Updates With Win2K3
Posted on 2004-04-01
Anyone have a step-by-step for setting up automated windows updates at a scheduled time. We have servers on all the time so a daily check at say 3am is fine, but there are workstations that get shut off after hours. Most likely I would need to use WOL to boot up machines to run the update routine, which app is the best for WOL, or schedule an update at bootup or shutdown. Need advice as to which is best, my goal is to do updates without interferring with the user's work. 500 points will be distributed evenly to participants.
