Windows Updates

Hi,

I have 200 user network with mixture of xp, and windows 7 pcs.  We have 2 forests that are 2 way trusted.

I used to use gfi languard, until it decided to deploy windows updates during the day and reboot all of our machines!

can you please recommend what is the best, and/or if WSUS can be deployed over a trust.

Thanks

Phil

Damn reboot all machines during the day had to suck.  Yes you can use WSUS,  it can be done across forests but I won't blow smoke, in a single domain right now (80k users) but we don't go across forests.

You will use a GPO on your clients   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708536(v=ws.10).aspx

As you can see you can schedule the install.  Having said that we still patch critical servers manually (exchange for example)

Thanks

Add authentication for connected WSUS servers in an Active Directory environment

You can add authentication for server-to-server synchronization in an Active Directory environment. If the WSUS servers are located in different forests, a trust between the forests must exist for this authentication method to succeed.

To enable server-to-server synchronization, follow these steps:

    Create and add a list of approved WSUS servers to the Web.config file

    Disable anonymous access to the WSUS server
