Manage Windows Update From Remote Server

By bradb ·
I have over 100 computers i am resposible for and they are spead out across the country. However there is no main server that controls all these clients. they are jsut out there like a bunch in individual home PCs. is there a way using SUS or whatever that I can force windows updates to them in one large batch file each month or quarter? Currently logging into each computer and telling it to update is more than time consuming. Please some one point me in the right direction.

Sure

I have in the past used a registry hack to point the wuau client to SUS. This site will show you the Reg keys you will need to create and import. Once thats down, a simple batch file that contains (wuauclt.exe /detectnow) will force the PC to check in for any available updates. you can also set different ways for the PC to automatically check for upadtes at specific days and times, or at login.
