KACE Product Support Question

post install tasks to install windows updates

03/15/2016 1498 views

Hi folks.

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
