KACE Product Support Question
post install tasks to install windows updates
A new question to al my helpful ninjas.
I wonder if there is a way to have my deployed image or
scripted install do a search and install of windows
updates as a post install task.
This might require a couple of reboots too, I'm sure.
So in a nutshell......
Search......install......reboot..... as many times as it has to,
until window is up to date.
Thanks again for all the help people.
Don't know what I would do without you guys.

Look into using WSUS Offline. http://www.wsusoffline.net/
You can host the update files on a file server. Then you'll have a mid install task to copy them over to e.g. the KACE folder, and a post install task to run Update.cmd with the parameters you specify. This will save bandwidth and make the update pretty painless.
There's a webinar from the KACE team on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dxK_1V_wM0
