Automate the update process accross several machines?

Postby s3dbw » 05.06.2018, 21:32

I have a non-internet connected network which has a server running server 2012R2 which is connected to a bunch of client machines currently running Win7. Rather than have to install wsuoffline updates on the server then again onto each client machines which is time consuming, is there a way whereby I could automate the process such that by installing the single set of updates onto the server it would automatically update the server then each of the client machines as users logon?

The way is pretty straightforward: Put WOU (WSUS Offline Update) on a network share on the server that is accessible by your clients (read-only is enough). Then use some script to map the network share as a network drive (so it gets a drive letter) on the clients (as admin!) and call wsusoffline\client\Update.cmd from there.

There is more information in wsusoffline\doc\faq*.txt on the network share topic.
