Hi Experts,

I need a script (VBS?) to send out to XP clients via Altiris to turn on Automatic Updates.

Use the script below...the first part of the script makes sure that the AutoUpdates service is turned on and set to "automatic"...the second part (after next) turns autoupdate 'On' in the control panel app...
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Service where Name='wuauserv'")
For each objService in colServiceList
call objService.Change( , , , , "Automatic")
objService.StartService()
Next
 
Const AU_Enabled = 4
Set objAutoUpdate = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.AutoUpdate")
Set objSettings = objAutoUpdate.Settings
objSettings.NotificationLevel = AU_ENABLED
objSettings.Save
 
Set objWMIService = Nothing
Set colServiceList = Nothing
Set objAutoUpdate = Nothing
Set objSettings = Nothing

Open in new window
