Configuring SBS2011 Updates via Console and WSUS for Laptops
I have an SBS2011 server that is managing updates through WSUS for the desktops on the network but I have recently added a laptop that is away from the network for long periods even though it is joined to the domain so I want to ensure that it gets its updates correctly. I have currently added it to excluded computers in the SBS Console and WSUS is reporting that there are updates for it that require approval.
How does the SBS2011 console and WSUS handle a computer that is not in regular contact with the server? By adding it to excluded computers will it use update settings locally and go to Windows Update to update itself?
How do I configure this so that the machine stays up to date and WSUS reports correctly?
