Dear All,

Hello There

Use a deadline and set the time to the past so updates are downloaded and installed immediately.

remember that WSUS only is a managed repository for updates it is up to the clients to sync (it is a pull rather than a push)

so which mean we have nothing to do to speed it up and client will periodically get the update from Wsus ?
