We've recently implemented WSUS in our office to get all the desktops and laptops up to date. There is a group policy in place.
The updates are working. The only problem is there are some people have never installed updates since they've been here, and it's installing 100 updates, and locking up their computer for 2 hours if they reboot. I realize that this will all be cleared up once they're up to date.
The other dilemma is that the downloads are scheduled for 11PM, and most people that have laptops, have them turned off at 11PM, so it seems as if the updates aren't downloading. Also certain users are trying to shut down their laptops to go home, and Windows is making them wait to install updates.
What would you suggest to be a good strategies for these problems?
