Need to force install on WSUS client

mpearson99 used Ask the Experts™
I have a windows 2008 server as my WSUS server with XP clients. I have one xp computer that need 41 updates after imaging it. The computer has the updates downloaded but will not install until 5:00pm today per GPO. I need to get it updated ASAP. Can I get it to install on the computer with some type of command like wuauclt.exe . I don't want to change the GPO for just this computer.

You could move it to an OU without the WSUS policy applied and then just start the install manually.

Alternatively you could create a new GPO with the same settings as your regular WSUS gpo but an earlier start time assign that GPO to an OU and move the computer that OU.

I use a nifty command line tool called wuinstall
You can use windows update agent..
