Change how workstations receive updates using SCCM 2012

Hi,

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.

Thanks,

Use IBCM. The list will come from SCCM but updates will be downloaded from MS site.

thanks for this. I had a look at IBCM and it requires a DMZ for the management Point. Is there any way of setting this up without a DMZ?

Just to add is it possible for the Workstation automatic updates to work in conjunction with SCCM? So users can update on there workstation/laptop schedule and I can push out critical updates for anyone that has missed an update?
