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.

Hi,

Do you have a reference image AND a production image? The best solution is to create and update your reference image, and use that as the new source for the production OSD. This will drastically speed up deployments.

Having one image, whether you patch it during OSD or after it's complete won't save any time - it just moves the time "lump" around a bit.

As for the "how to patch" bit, you can stand up another WSUS instance, which ONLY the reference image can see.
