I find my self going out and bringing down all the Windows updates after my machines are built. I was wondering if anyone has created a post step for the Deployment Service to grab all the available Windows updates that are on the Kbox ?

  • To clarify, are you looking to use the K1 patching to install any available updates to a machine that just finished imaging from a K2?
  • Yes, like the Windows Updates. We are really wanting and trying to only use one device one system. and avoiding something like WSUS. any pointers ?
  • Create a smart label with the newly configured machines and setup a full detect and deploy on it. This will check for missing patches and if they are already downloaded to the K1000 they will be applied directly.
  • As Nico said that would be the best and have the patch schedule target any machine with that label. If you don't have a smart label yet, here is one based on when the record for the device was created.

    Give it whatever label you like and/or change the time. This label will be added to any new systems are are no more than 24 hours new to the KBOX.


    select *, UNIX_TIMESTAMP(now()) - UNIX_TIMESTAMP(LAST_SYNC) as LAST_SYNC_TIME,
    UNIX_TIMESTAMP(MACHINE.LAST_SYNC) as LAST_SYNC_SECONDS
    from MACHINE
    where (DATE(NOW() - INTERVAL 24 HOUR) < DATE(MACHINE.CREATED))
