I have nearly 300 servers I need to update. Some of the servers are 2003 machines and some are 2008. These servers have not been updated in the last two years. I am considering using Group Policy to perform the updates. I do not have a WSUS server to pull the updates from. My question is: How can I download the latest service packs and security patches using group policy. Or, is this a two step process. I am required to manually download the SPs and security patches and then configure group policy to pull form a central source?
I don't have time to configure a WSUS servers at this point.
