We have a few hundred PC's which will have Deep Freeze shortly. One of the features of DF is that it allows for maintenance times to download OS patches and AV updates.
I'd like for the machines to pull from WSUS, like everyone else. The only thing is i don't want 300 machines at a time hitting the wsus server, for all the same updates.
I can have them scheduled to poll at different intervals, but what I'd really like is to have the Windows Updates downloaded to a "thawed" directory, so we can use BITS to get what's needed over time, and not lose what's downloaded after a restart.
All my googling has resulted in others asking the same question. Am I missing an easier way of doing this?
