Windows XP Update Rollout Software

Hi Experts,

I was wondering if there was any server based software out there that could go online and download all the necessary xp etc updates and then farm them out to my 100 or so network clients.

Rather than doing updates individually locally


Cheers

belronan,

MS has what is called "Software Update Services" which is explained here:

In simple terms, Microsoft SUS is a version of Windows Update that you can run on your network.  (Software Update Services)
