Pushing out patches

By GJ2008 ·
We have 40 PC users in my company and if I need to update the workstations with new patches/service packs I normally go around and do it manually on each workstation - is there any way of automatically pushing out the patches from the servers?

Try "HFNetChkLT/Pro" from www.shavlik.com
I tested it and with few minor problems it works.

Microsoft Software Update Services (SUS):

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/sus/default.mspx


"Microsoft Software Update Services (SUS) enables administrators to quickly and reliably deploy the latest critical updates and security updates to Windows? 2000 and Windows Server? 2003-based servers, as well as to desktop computers running Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional.

SUS now provides Windows service packs (SPs), in addition to critical and security updates. SUS will deliver Windows XP SP1, Windows 2000 SP4, and all future service packs for Windows 2000, Windows XP, and the Windows Server 2003 family of products. For more information about how service packs are installed, please visit the frequently asked questions page."

And, IT'S FREE!

hope this helps

SUS is the way to go. I just implemented SUS on my network and it works great. Just print out the white paper Deploying Microsoft Software Update Services from Microsoft's website and follow the directions. The setup is very straightforward. Joseph Moore has the link above.

If SUS will work in your environment go with that if not. Use group policy or my personl favorite GFI LanGuard www.gfi.com. Cool tool (hint)the 30 day free trial will push patches.
