We currently use SCCM 2012 with SP1 and it is set so I can create a update package and deploy critical updates to the workstations i.e. update office, windows O/S, SQL Server, etc. This all works fine.
By Default when using SCCM when a workstation runs a manual windows update (or a scheduled windows update check) it’s says nothing is available as its looking at the SCCM server and the user needs to click on “check online for updates from Microsoft Update” for the manual update to work.
I would like the workstations to look at Microsoft for the updates first so they can schedule their own Windows updates and then have SCCM push updates out for all the machines that are not updated.
Is this possible? It’s just that certain users are rarely on the network and different members of staff use different software so I don’t want to download all updates and push them out to each office when there might just be a single user using a particular Microsoft package i.e. Visio and would rather they update themselves automatically using windows updates and I push out the critical updates only.
