Offline update and patch of 98, Me, 2K and XP?
Posted on 2004-09-30
I have a client with five machines with Windows 98, millennium, 2000 and XP Pro and home. They are not connected to the Internet. I need to get these machines updated with all Microsoft patches.
I have reviewed the various patch management solutions already posted on this web site. Some things have changed since those articles were written. in particular, The Microsoft web site no longer has an option to buy a CD-ROM of patches for the various systems.
Since this is a small site, there isn't a window server on the network, thus using SUS is questionable.
What options are there to manage the updated these machines without a window server?
I am particularly interested in a complete solution that handles all of the machines and all patches for them.
It would also be nice if it wasn't too expensive!
