Windows update and kace Agent

05/05/2020 377 views

To manage the computer park, I based myself on kace's recommendations and on the fact that the laptops would regularly reconnect to the internal network of the company to update them.
I think I made a design error.
So I adjusted windows update as recommended by kace, it works only if the users force a detection.
I also cannot modify the gpo of these machines, but the users are mostly administrators.
I think coupled with the agent kace a script which says that if the SDA is unjoingnable then we force windows update.
What do you think ? or what do you do?

You must conf. gpo that the clients connect to the sma kace and if you also want you can disable the clients to connect to microsoft.

It is specified that if we use kace, it is necessary to deactivate the automatic updates that is what I did.

The problem is the "windows update" service is in manual mode.

So if the client does not force the update search when they cannot contact the sma, the stations do not update.
