Hi,

I use SCCM to deply a OSD to my pc's. We use WSUS on a diffrent server that connects to Solarwinds Patch Manager. After the OSD is deployed we have to download and install windows updates and it take a while.....

How can I deploy windows updates or update the OSD when imaging the pc?

Do I need to install WSUS on the SCCM server?

thx

WSUS doesn't need to be on the SCCM computer. But you must create your update packages and  add the updates to the task sequence

When you use a WSUS installation in a SUP role then SCCM takes over the WSUS installation.

If your WSUS is already attached to Solarwinds then the results are unpredictable. Maybe you can position SCCM WSUS under Solarwinds WSUS.

MS recommends a fresh WSUS install.

The install does not need to be on SCCM servers. It can exist on another server and still be attached to SCCM.
