I'm using a pretty basic deployment of Server 2008 R2 WDS at a client, it works great, but the image is getting fairly old. Is there a way to automatically inject Windows Updates into the WDS images? (Windows 7 images). I need as little user interaction as possible, if any.

Hello,

well you should export all images, open it using imagex,use this tool ( http://www.pcworld.com/product/1120226/rt-se7en-lite-beta-32-bit-version-.html ) to slipstream all kb and sp, then repack the image (imagex) and finaly reimport the image on the server.
Or put a WSUS server localy, but the pc will ask 2 or many reboots for all updates.

That isn't automatic :) I'm looking for as little touch as possible.

There is no automated way to inject updates into an image. You can use DISM to inject updates into win7+ images. As an image, it is a one-time step and will impact all future deployments. But it does still require manually deciding which updates to inject and issuing the commands to inject them.

If you are looking for some tool that you can just install, fall asleep, and find your image in WDS image fully updated when you wake up, it doesn't exist.
